Mr. Melley and members of the press. 

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
convened by Chairman Healey at 2:30 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
approval. Chairman Healey noted a correction which had been made 
in the minutes of the meeting of January 30 re Land Acquisition, 
Columbia Point - Parcel B, (p. 5) which correction has been entered 
into the permanent records of the Trustees. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees for January 30, 1970. 

The Chairman called for the President's Comments . Presi- 
dent Lederle, referring to the analysis of the Governor's Budget 
Recommendations which had been circulated to the Board, noted three 
areas of concern: the Disadvantaged Student Program, Scholarship 
and Work Study, and Library support. 

The Disadvantaged Student Program will admit 250 freshmen 
in the fall. With 125 students admitted to the program in 1968, 
and 180 in 1969, the total number of students participating in this 
program next September will be 555 (less attrition) . The requested

sum of $750,000 necessary for operation of the program for 1970 has 
been cut to $450,000. This is an increase of $150,000 over the 
1970 appropriation of $300,000. 

For support of Scholarship and Work Study, $1,290,000 was 
requested, and $850,000 recommended the same as this year. The 
President noted that reductions in federal funds would actually 
necessitate an increase in state support over last year's appropri- 
ation plus an increase in enrollment next year of 1500 students. 

Additionally, President Lederle noted the very inadequate 
support of special programs, particularly in the area of library 
support, with $1,200,000 requested and $200,000 recommended by the 
Governor. 

Due to the illness of Committee Chairman Haigis, the 
Report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was given by 
Trustee Crowley. The committee had met on February 12 to consider 
the Master Plan Development Notebook - Columbia Point. 

Vise-Chancellor Hamilton explained that the Master Plan 
Development Notebook incorporates all planning documents - site 
envelopes, areas for the first six buildings to be constructed 
(hopefully by 1972) and location of remaining buildings through 
1980. The Master Plan calls for the construction of the first six 
buildings immediately. The architects are already at work and draw- 
ings will be ready for submission to the Trustee Committee on Build- 
ings and Grounds on March 6 and April 15. Excavation for foundation 
is scheduled for fall, 1970. The Master Plan Concept, the Vice- 
Chancellor said, is in no way changed from former presentations to 
the Board. The firm of Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates will be 
discharged from its obligation to the BBC for this project, although 
continuing to fulfill its overall obligations to the University of 
Massachusetts as design consultants. 

The committee, having thoroughly reviewed all details of 
the Master Plan Development Notebook, recommends acceptance. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the Master Plan Development Note- 
book for UM/Boston at Columbia Point (Docu- 
ment T70-076) which document now becomes a 
part of these minutes. 

It was also 

VOTED : To accept the Master Plan concept for the 
UM/Boston Columbia Point site as finally 
presented by the firm of Pietro Belluschi 
and Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates under 
date of February 12, 1970. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Report of the Committee on Finance was next presented 
by Trustee Pumphret. The committee had met on February 4 and had 
authorized Treasurer Johnson to make changes in the University 
Operating Fund as recommended by Standish, Ayer & Wood, Inc., In- 
vestment Counsel (Document T70-071) . 

The committee reviewed the Policy on Off-Campus Program 
Fees and recommends acceptance. 

POLICY ON OFF -CAMPUS PROGRAM FEE 

The Off-Campus Program fee is assessed of participants in off- 
campus programs in lieu of the Health, Athletic, Student Union and 
Activities Fees. Excepted is the Identification Card Fee, which 
all students must pay. In addition, students must be cautioned 
that failure to pay the Health Fee in the fall semester makes them 
ineligible to take part in the supplemental health insurance pro- 
gram for the entire year and that failure to pay this fee during 
any given semester makes the many benefits of the University Health 
Services, including the Mental Health Service, unavailable to them 
for that semester. i 

Off-campus programs are defined as full-time academic programs de- 
signed for individuals or groups with a minimum duration of one 
semester and part of the regular degree programs of the University 
based and housed off campus which do not normally make use of Uni- 
versity facilities. Students who take part in off-campus programs 
who are housed and/or fed on the campus are not eligible for fee 
assessment under this policy. 

The off-campus program fee is based upon the bonded indebtedness 
portions of the replaced fees, and is established each year by the 
Treasurer of the University. 

Off-campus program directors or advisors of students in programs 
designed for individuals are specifically responsible for registra- 
tion of the programs with the Office of the Treasurer. Participants 
in unregistered programs will be assessed all fees and no rebate 
will be possible because of the prior commitment of income antici- 
pated from such fees. A program director may ascertain the 
eligibility of participants in his program for assessment of fees 
under this policy by contacting the Office of the Treasurer. To be 
certain of eligibility for assessment under this policy, program 
directors must notify the Office of the Treasurer of their program 
and the number of participants far enough in advance of the 
beginning of the fiscal year in which the program is to occur to 
allow the calculation of the impact of the assessment of the fee 
upon the budgets of the trust fund units affected. This is normall) 
no later than October 15 of the preceding fiscal year. Exceptions 
to the registration date may be granted by the Treasurer for com- 
pelling reasons. 

It was then moved, seconded, and

visions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws 
as amended by Chapter 648, 1962. The classi- 
fication, salary range and descriptive job 
specification for each position to which a

Chairman Healey asked for other business to come before

In connection with new construction problems which have 
arisen at the Medical School, and on motion made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED : That the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, 
or a sub-committee thereof, immediately begin

(related to Medical School construction) and 
to work industriously until the project is 
completed. 

Chairman Healey noted that requests had been presented to 
the Secretary by several individuals asking to be heard by the 
Board regarding the tenure status of Professor Lehmann of UM/Boston 
The Chairman stated that the regular procedures, which are in agree- 
ment with those outlined by the AAUP, have been followed, and the 
matter has gone through normal administrative channels. Professor 
Lehmann has engaged counsel, and an open hearing has been requested. 
At the last meeting of the Trustees, a group of faculty from UM/ 
Boston came before the Board. The matter is now, as is normal pro 
cedure, being referred to the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy which is chaired by Trustee Troy. All further requests 
should go to Trustee Troy's committee.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy stated that he would have preferred an 
earlier meeting, but that Professor Lehmann had requested a meeting 
in March. The format of the meeting, including the request for an 
open hearing, will be arranged between counsel. The committee will 
reach a decision after hearing the evidence and then will report to 
the full Board of Trustees. Trustee Troy expressed the opinion 
that the present meeting was not the time to go into the merits of 
the case, but that the Board would recognize those who had anything 
new to add to information already received. 

Mr. Andrew Warren of the Student Council, UM/Boston, 
stated that the Lehmann case is "indicative of general discontent, 
which is prevalent on the UM/Boston campus." He presented a pro- 
posal asking for a re^evaluation by the Board of Trustees of the 
tenure and grievance procedures of the University. Mr. Warren 
further stated that "tension now existing on the UM/Boston campus 
is caused by the present tenure and grievance procedures." 

Chairman Healey stated that the Board is aware of the need 
for review of policies on tenure, as well as in other areas, and 
that these procedures will be reviewed. He added that he was not, 
however, expressing specific agreement with Mr. Warren's proposal. 

Discussion of a purported non-reappointment of a UM/Boston 
faculty member was initiated by members of the UM/Boston group, but 
the Board members and the President had no knowledge of this case. 
The ensuing discussion clarified the fact it is not normal pro- 
cedure for issues surrounding all non-reappointments to come to the 
President or the Board. The aggrieved party must initiate the 
action. 

Professor Bluestone of UM/Boston asked "if the Board had 
formally agreed not to accept the petition." Chairman Healey re- 
plied that the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy is the 
formal channel for the Board in such matters. Depending on the 
action taken by the committee, it would then be normal procedure, if 
desired, to request review by the full Board of Trustees. 

The delegation from UM/Boston then left the meeting. 

Chairman Healey presented, for the Executive Committee, 
the recommendation that Provost Oswald Tippo be named Chancellor of 
the University's Amherst campus, effective immediately. 

In making this recommendation, Chairman Healey expressed 
recognition of the student point of view regarding procedures used 
in selection of a Chancellor, which had been presented by the stu- 
dent delegation from UM/ Amherst at the morning informal session. 
He also expressed the hope that students would attempt to understand 
the compelling reasons for action at this time on the appointment of 
Dr. Tippo to the Chancellorship. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Healey cited Dr. Tippo's outstanding record as a 
nationally known scientist, administrator and educator, and his role 
in recruiting a distinguished faculty. As Provost, Dr. Tippo has 
worked with President Lederle for greater student involvement in 
university policy making, for stronger and innovative academic pro- 
grams, for curricular reform, for greater educational opportunity 
for disadvantaged students and for the new library facilities now 
under construction. His campus support is widespread among all 
groups. The Faculty and Graduate Student Senates have expressed 
unanimous support. 

"The Board is confident," Chairman Healey said, "that if 
the undergraduate student body was making a decision based on merit 
rather than on procedures involved, it would overwhelmingly support 
Dr. Tippo's appointment." 

Trustee Olken, representing the Student Senate, read into 
the record the following statement: 

"We are now discussing the appointment of Provost Oswald 
Tippo to the newly-created post of Chancellor for the 
Amherst campus. Under the administrative reorganization 
plan, the Chancellor is to be in an all-encompassing 
sense the chief administrative officer for the Amherst 
campus . 



This appointment, if voted 
over the objections of the 
which has on three separate 
October, endorsed the princ 
search committee to assess 
Tippo along with those of o 
occasions the Senate has re 
the Provost Acting Chancell

undergraduate Student Senate 
occasions, as early as last 
iple of a student-faculty

ther candidates. On two 
quested that the Board name 
or pending the results of 



Immediate action by the Board, rejecting the principle 
of a community search in favor of an immediate Trustee 
appointment, seriously contravenes the fundamental 
principles of community. To appoint the chief admini- 
strative officer of a campus without meaningful prior 
consultation with the student body, and in opposition 
to the reiterated will of the student legislature, is 
unwise. 

It is not Dr. Tippo himself to whom we take strong ex- 
ception (although the student body knows too little 
of his beliefs and capabilities to pass judgment at 
this time) , but rather to the process through which 
the Board has unwisely chosen to fill the Chancellor- 
ship." 

Trustee Gordon referred to the Trustee meeting of 
November 14 in Lee, and the SWAP conference of that weekend, "at 



3311 



3312 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

which there had been much meaningful and constructive dialogue be- 
tween students and Trustees." In connection with the Chancellor- 
ship, Trustee Gordon could not recall at any time, use of the term 
"search committee." Rather, he said, there had been general agree- 
ment that there would be a period of consultation with students and 
faculty before Trustee action on the appointment of a Chancellor 
for the Amherst campus. "This was done," Trustee Gordon stated. 
He noted the period of time elapsed from that meeting to the present 
date (mid-November through February) in which students had been free 
to make suggestions, and in which meetings with student and faculty 
groups had been held. 

He noted, furthermore, that the group not represented in 
the voting on the Chancellorship was the faculty; and that the 
faculty concern in this matter was of a more continuing and perma- 
nent nature than that of the student body. The Faculty and Graduate 
Senates, Trustee Gordon said, had responded in the spirit of the 
discussions . 

Professor Henry Korson, representing the Faculty Senate, 
stated that, on two occasions, the Faculty Senate on the Amherst 
campus had expressed unanimous support for Dr. Tippo's appointment 
to the Chancellorship - last spring and again in December, 1969. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To name Dr. Oswald Tippo to the post of 
Chancellor, University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, effective immediately. 

Trustee Olken is recorded as voting in opposition. 

Dr. Tippo made a brief statement expressing gratitude for 
support of his appointment. He announced that he was calling a 
special meeting of the Faculty, Graduate and Undergraduate Senates 
on Thursday, February 26, to review campus problems, to outline the 
general course of action for the immediate future, and to present 
specific proposals for later consideration by each of the three 
Senates . 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:40 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
convened by Chairman Healey at 2:10 p.m. 

Chairman Healey noted a change in the minutes of the meet 
ing of February 23, 1970. An addition has been made on page 9 and ^ 
deletion on page 6. The paragraph at the top of page 6 was not in 
tended as a part of Trustee Lyons formal report as delegate to the 
BHE. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the corrected minutes of the 
meeting of the Board of Trustees for 
February 23, 1970. 

President Lederle noted that he and many members of the 
Board and of the University administration had attended the recent 
funeral of Alden C. Brett of Belmont. Mr. Brett died on March 6, 
1970. He had a long and distinguished record of service to the 
University as Trustee and as an original founder of the University 
Building Association (predecessor of the University Building 
Authority) which pioneered in establishing self-liquidating

residence halls and dining commons of the campus in Amherst. Mr. 
Brett was one of the University's most distinguished alumni. He 
had also served as president of the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation. In 1954 the University bestowed an honorary degree of 
Doctor of Laws upon Mr. Brett. A dormitory has also been named in 
his honor. 

The President commented on recent meetings with 
Commissioner Dwight in which he and other representatives of the 
University had participated. The Governor's budget recommendations 
were discussed, with particular emphasis on the urgent need for in- 
creased allocations in the three top priority areas: The Disad- 
vantaged Students Program, Scholarship Aid and Library Support. 

On March 11, President Lederle participated in a State 
House press conference at which the Master Plan for the University 
of Massachusetts/Boston at Columbia Point was unveiled. Hopefully, 
by 1972, the President said, Columbia Point will be providing fine 
physical facilities and educational opportunities for 5,000 students 
from the metropolitan area. 

The President also noted the fact that the University's 
basketball team is currently the top-rated team in New England and 
will participate in the National Invitation Tournament in Madison 
Square Garden on March 14 - a first for the University. 

At the request of Chairman Healey, Trustee Haigis pre- 
sented the Report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds . 

Planning Officer Littlefield, UM/A, reviewed the Feasi- 
bility Study for the Engineering Laboratory, UM/A. This project 
will provide 225,000 gross feet of additional space for increased 
enrollment in the School of Engineering. 

The Laboratory will house the Chemical Engineering De- 
partment, Systems Engineering Research Laboratories, Environmental 
Research Laboratories and the Materials Engineering Research 
Laboratories. 

Project cost, based on December, 1969 figures is 
$12,600,000 for construction; $1,890,000 for fees and contingencies, 
and $4,500,000 for equipment, making a total development cost of 
$18,990,000. 

Mr. Rosane of Drumney, Rosane, Anderson emphasized that 
the model displayed was intended in block form only to show the con- 
ceptual design for an "Engineering Quadrangle" and did not repre- 
sent a detailed building plan for the Laboratory. The Feasibility 
Study as presented has the full approval of the design consultants, 
Sasaki, Dawson, DeMay Associates. The firm will now proceed with 
preliminary plans which will be presented to the Board at a later 
date. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Following discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the Feasibility Study for the 

Engineering Laboratory, DM/A, as submitted 
by the architectural firm of Drumney, 
Rosane, Anderson at a total project cost 
of $18,990,000 based on 1969 construction 
costs and subject to availability of BBC 
contingency funds. 

Chairman Haigis called attention to a large model of the 
buildings and site plan for the Columbia Point Campus, UM/Boston. 
He pointed out the six buildings to be built as Phase I of the 
Master Plan: the Library, Science Center, two Colleges, Administra 
tion Building and the Central Services and Supply Building. It was 
pointed out that the construction schedule has a target completion 
date of September, 1972, and is extremely tight. However, because 
of the very efficient coordination of effort by the architects, the 
BBC, the UM/B planning staff and the site consultants, there is a 
very good chance that completion of the buildings will be on 
schedule. 

Chairman Haigis reviewed for the Board the work of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds and all others involved at the 
meeting of March 6. Much intensive work has been done to bring 
individual building budgets in line. The result is that all six 
buildings (Phase I) are now at or below budget in architect's 
estimates. 

Planning Officer O'Brien, UM/B, reviewed details of each 
of the six buildings pointing out particularly the differences in 
design of each of the two colleges, although each architect had 
basically the same envelope plan. He noted one major change in 
that the Administration Building and the Library are now connected 
necessitating a total envelope plan change. Exteriors for all 
buildings are basically brick, with minor emphasis on structural 
concrete. Referring to a specific charge by the Board of Trustees 
that all Library space be utilized until book acquisitions are 
ultimately completed, Mr. O'Brien pointed out that plans call for 
use of this space as temporary classrooms. Library space will also 
be used by the Department of Art until construction of the Fine 
Arts Building. 

After general discussion of the Columbia Point Campus 
plans and schematics, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Schematic Design for the 
Library - 090 - Columbia Point as pre- 
sented by the architectural firm of Harry 
Weese and Associates as detailed in Docu- 
ment T70-086, which document becomes a 
part of these minutes, and at a project 
cost not to exceed $20,000,000.

Chairman Haigis called attention to a serious security 
problem involving intruders in the residence halls at UM/ Amherst. 
The Committee on Buildings and Grounds recommends posting of 
notices inside the residence halls reading " This Building for Use 
of Residents and Their Guests Only ." Such signs would, in effect, 
be "No Trespassing" notices, and would allow campus security offi- 
cers to make immediate arrests of intruders when necessary. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the signing of University resi- 
dence halls in the following manner: "This 
Building for Use of Residents and Their 
Guests Only." 

Turning to the matter of Channel 57 - Educational Tele- 
vision - Chairman Haigis requested Secretary McCartney to comment.

The Secretary noted that efforts to obtain the necessary 
funds for this project from the Legislature had been unsuccessful 
and that a proposal put forth by the Lowell Cooperative Broadcast- 
ing Council (WGBH Foundation) is the only option remaining whereby 
the channel may be activated within a reasonable period of time. 

The WGBH proposal, in effect, invites the University to 
join with other educational institutions as the seventeenth member 
of the Council. The WGBH Foundation proposes, initially, to in- 
stall translators to bring the Channel 2 signal to western Massa- 
chusetts. Later, a two-way micro-wave relay system will be set up 
between Amherst and Boston and a transmitter on Mt. Tom to carry 
Channel 57 will be activated. Secretary McCartney noted that WFCR 
had been started in this manner by WGBH and had been later turned over 
to local operation under University control. Essentially the same 
procedure could be followed in this instance, and part of the pro- 
posal by WGBH so provides.

Commencement 
Policies 



Legislation 
to Increase 
Tuition 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Olken, speaking for the SWAP Committee, extended 
an invitation to the Board of Trustees to change the location of 
the April, 1970 meeting to Amherst in order to participate in the 
proposed Spring SWAP Conference. The Trustees agreed, by consensus 
to select a date between April 14-22 for a joint meeting with the 
SWAP Conference, the date to be worked out by the Secretary in con- 
sultation with the Chairman of the Board and representatives of SWAP 

Senior Class President David Veale, who had presented a 
proposal to the Board regarding Commencement policies at the morn- 
ing informal session which called essentially for greater student 
control of Commencement, made the following statement: 

"I request the Trustees to define Commencement for us. 
If you feel that Commencement is a University affair, then don't 
make us pay the $10 fee. If you feel, as we do, that it is a 
community affair then I am sure you will accept the proposals made 
by the Senior Class." 

Chairman Healey stated that the question of Commencement 
policies and procedures will be taken up by the Executive Committee 
at its next meeting. The matter will then come before the full 
Board. 

Andrew Warren, Vice-President of the Student Council, 
UM/B, requested that the Board take a position in opposition to 
H3647 - a bill to raise tuition to $500 at the University of Massa- 
chusetts. (Other, similar legislation has also been proposed). A 
public hearing on H.3647, Mr. Warren said, will be held on April 1. 

Trustee Lyons stated that the BHE Legislative Committee 
had agreed to oppose this legislation. 

President Lederle observed that this legislation had been 
discussed by the Committee on Government and University Relations, 
and that the formal University position is to oppose it. He also 
noted that Boston TV Station WBZ had editorialized in support of 
this legislation. A student has been given equal time by the sta- 
tion for rebuttal, and President Lederle has also requested equal 
time. The University, the President said, should strongly oppose 
this legislation and is willing to cooperate with the BHE in a con- 
tinuing study of the matter. 

There was general agreement with the following affirmation 
of Trustee policy on tuition as stated by Trustee Troy: "Free 
public education, and low cost in education, clearly are among the 
first and finest traditions of our American democracy. Any attempt 
at change should be resisted strongly at all cost." 

Treasurer Johnson stated that it was necessary to appoint 
a new custodian of military property in accordance with the ROTC 
contract. This function was formerly assigned to the Controller, 
and it is now recommended that the Office of Inventory Control 

assume this responsibility. 



3321 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

It was, therefore, moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Mr. John 
Barrett, Director of the Office of In- 
ventory Control, as Custodian of Military 
Property for the Amherst campus. 

Chairman Healey noted that Dr. Martin Sweig was attending 
his last meeting as a Trustee; also that a replacement had been 
named for Trustee Plimpton. Secretary McCartney was directed by 
the Chairman to formulate appropriate resolutions of appreciation 
for the services of both Trustees, to be submitted to the next meet--- 
ing of the Board of Trustees. 

Chancellor Tippo said that he had been requested to say 
a few words about his first days as Chancellor. Commenting that he 
had had "a full cup," the Chancellor enumerated the various crises 
which have occurred since his appointment on January 23: the 
"Humphrey Affair," the "gastrointestinal upset" which involved some 
700 students, drug raids, the Mills incident and the demonstrations 
in connection with the Honeywell and Army Materiels Command inter- 
views. (Secretary McCartney commented to the Chairman that Dr. 
Tippo was the only academic general who ever received a "battlefield 
commission. ") 

The Chancellor called attention to two new interim appoint 
ments: Dr. Robert Gluckstern to take charge of Provost's office, 
pending the formation of a campus search committee; and the appoint 
ment of Dr. Randolph Bromery, formerly head of the Department of 
Geology, as Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Student Affairs 
This new position has been created to form liaison between the 
Chancellor and the Office of the Dean of Students. Dr. Bromery' s 
appointment is also pending formation of a campus search committee, 
after details of the new University system organization are com- 
pleted. 



Chancellor Tippo also reported on a joint meeting of the 
three Senates held to discuss campus governance. He mentioned 
creation of a University newspaper, the University Gazette (first 
edition to be published on March 27, 1970.) 

The Chancellor stated that there had been much misin- 
formation regarding some of the recent campus incidents. He re- 
quested Dean Field, Acting Provost Gluckstern and Associate Provost 
Allen to review three of the major ones. 

Dean Field reported on events surrounding former Vice- 
President Hubert Humphrey's appearance on campus. 

He summarized saying that the Pillsbury Foundation had 
made a Hubert Humphrey lecture on American Foreign Policy in the 
1970' s available to a number of campuses. Mr. Humphrey was sub- 
sequently scheduled by the Distinguished Visitors Committee to talk

Incident 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

in Curry Hicks Cage on the evening of Tuesday, February 24, 1970. 
Coincidentally, the date of Mr. Humphrey's appearance followed 
closely upon the verdict in the Chicago trials. Meetings of stu- 
dents, and others, "upset" over the trials were held in the Student 
Union on Tuesday afternoon. Plans were developed, the general tenor 
of which was that there would be protests at the lecture; the 
specifics were not clear. UMass professor and attorney for the 
Civil Liberties Union, Isidore Silver, spoke to a large group in the 
Student Union on Tuesday afternoon only on legal aspects of the 
trial; a Bobby Seale film, described by Dean Field as "vigorous" 
was shown. Professor Silver has since denied some remarks attri- 
buted to him by the press off campus. He has indicated that the 
Collegian reporting was accurate. 

A large group of demonstrators arrived early for the 
lecture and filled seats near the front. The Cage had a near- 
capacity audience. Mr. Humphrey's appearance on the platform was 
met with much noise, heckling, confusion and various organized dis- 
ruptions. Mr. Humphrey did agree to a question period before his 
lecture, but after 15 minutes, during which he had great difficulty 
being heard, he gave up and left the platform. He departed from the 
Cage under police escort. 

Later, Mr. Humphrey presented his lecture to some 60-80 
persons at the Lord Jeffery Inn. The lecture was taped and later 
broadcast. 

Chancellor Tippo said that there had been many rumors and 
misconceptions regarding this most unfortunate incident. He cited 
the story, carried in the press, that a student had been so badly 
beaten that he had required hospitalization. Investigation revealed 
that the incident had actually occurred at a private party three day 
after Mr. Humphrey's appearance. 

Associate Provost Gluckstem reviewed the Mills House in- 
cident. He gave the following background information: "Black de- 
mands made in October, 1968, included establishment of a Black 
Cultural Center. The University agreed to the need for such a center 
Mills House, thereafter, was renovated to include a library, lounges 
a coffee shop, and offices for the CCEBS and Upward Bound Programs 
as well as the Area Government Office. The third and fourth floors 
of Mills were occupied by 75 resident students, 68 of whom were 
white. Increasing friction between white residents and blacks, and 
need for Black Studies offices, seminar rooms, Black Art, and other 
activities suggested the need for rapid conversion to a total Black 
Cultural Center. Discussions were started between blacks and 
whites; the white students supported the need for the Black Cultural 
Center, and were close to agreeing to move out during spring recess 
or in the summer. 

"On the night of Thursday, February 26, a fight broke out 
in the street between a white fraternity student (Kappa Sigma) and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

a black. The white student returned to his fraternity and sub- 
sequently a group from the fraternity returned to Mills. A fight 
ensued outside Mills, which was broken up by police. Later, blacks, 
some of whom were armed with clubs, started to march on the 
fraternity; they turned back and prepared to defend the entrance to 
Mills. The blacks apparently feared attack by whites. White stu- 
dents on the third and fourth floors were threatened with harm 
(knives were allegedly brandished) if they left their rooms. White 
students called Amherst, campus, and state police. A resolution 
was negotiated at 5-00 a.m. with the blacks by Dean Field and his 
staff, members of the black faculty and others. Mills House would 
be recognized by the University as a Black Cultural Center, and the 
white residents would move out by Tuesday, March 3. White students 
moved out Saturday morning to emergency quarters. Some black stu- 
dents moved into Mills. The Proctor's possessions were damaged. 
Departing white students damaged furniture and walls. 

"Tension remained high; retaliation was feared. Chancellor 
Tippo, Dean Field and members of his staff together with other ad- 
ministrators and faculty visited the area, talking to students and 
attempting to calm tensions. By Monday, only 21 white students were 
left without accommodations. There had been a meeting with some 
parents of the displaced white students. The Mathematics Depart- 
ment offered to vacate Arnold House to provide rooms. 

"A solution has now been found, with the 21 white students 
having accepted an invitation to move into Brooks House, creating 
a coeducational dormitory. This arrangement has necessitated 
moving Mental Health facilities to Arnold. The Mental Health staff 
has reluctantly agreed. 

"Black students living in Mills were told they must move out. 
At a meeting of the entire black community, they agreed to move as 
soon as satisfactory alternate housing was found. There will be no 
residents in Mills House." 

Chancellor Tippo stated that University support of the CCEBS 
Program continues to have top priority. The Chancellor also ex- 
pressed personal support of plans for a Black Studies Department 
and for the Five College Cooperative Effort in Black Studies. 

Associate Provost Allen reported on the Honeywell and Army 
Materiel Command recruiting demonstrations on March 5 and 6. His 
statement follows: 

Early in the week of March 1, we learned that demonstrations 
were planned for March 5 and 6, when the Honeywell Corporation and 
the Army Materiel Command would hold recruiting interviews. On 
Wednesday, March 4, members of the administration met with the 
Faculty Senate Emergency Advisory Committee, the Student Senate Ex- 
ecutive Committee, and representatives of the Graduate Student 
Senate. At that meeting, a decision was made to follow the common

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

elements in the student approved Picketing Code and the Faculty 
Senate Code (which has the official approval of the Board of 
Trustees) . The student government and student judiciary representa- 
tives accepted responsibility for enforcement. 

The codes have much in common, but there are two im- 
portant differences: The Faculty Senate Code does, not allow 
demonstrators inside a building - the Student Code does. The Stu- 
dent Senate Code requires consultation by administrators before the 
police are involved, although such consultation has always taken 
place. 

Representatives of both Student Senates, the Student 
Judiciary, the Faculty Senate Emergency Advisory Committee, were 
present in the interviewing area throughout the day on both 
Thursday and Friday, March 5 and 6. The Student Government and Stu- 
dent Judiciary members did a fairly effective job of enforcing the 
code, and in general, the demonstrators complied with agreed upon 
procedures. 

Thursday, during the Honeywell interviews, there was some 
noise and harassment from the demonstrators. Demonstrators were 
asked to "cease and desist" a few times, which they did after "a 
reasonable time" (as specified in both Student and Faculty Codes) . 
All scheduled interviews did take place, except for "the usual per- 
centage of no-shows," according to the interviewer. 

The demonstrations on Friday for the Army Materiels 
Command were on a much smaller scale than those of the previous day, 
with no particular effect on interviews. 

Dr. Allen noted that there had been some criticism of the 
fact that the Faculty Senate (Board of Trustees approved) Code had 
not been used rather than the Student Code chosen by the Emergency 
Advisory Committee. 

In response to a question raised by Trustee Croce as to 
the advisability of allowing recruiting on campus, Chancellor Tippo 
stated that the majority of students had voted for open recruiting 
policies. "This is the most convenient arrangement for student 
interviews," Chancellor Tippo said. "It is a privilege and a right we 
want them to have."

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
convened by Chairman Healey at 2:30 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been circulated 
and read, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on March 13, 1970. 

Due to the large number of students present who were con- 
cerned with the issue of coeducational dormitories, Chairman Healey 
departed from the regular agenda to hear first the Report of the 
Committee on Student Activities by Committee Chairman Rowland. 

Mrs. Rowland summarized the meeting held in Amherst on 
April 16 at which the matter of coeducational residence halls had 
been extensively discussed. Mr. Tierney had given a full report on 
the operation of Greenough House as a coeducational residence hall 
since the end of January. Twelve other residence halls have sub- 
mitted coeducational proposals, among them Butterfield, Lewis, and 
Prince Houses whose "sample" proposals were discussed. The Greenough 
room arrangement now has men and women on alternate floors; Greenough 
residents request approval of an arrangement which would have men 
and women in adjacent rooms on the same floor. The proposals for 
some of the other coeducational residence halls also request the 
adjacent room arrangement.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Considerable discussion had ensued at the committee meet- 
ing, Chairman Rowland said, on the "adjacent room" issue. One 
Trustee did not favor additional coeducational residence halls at 
the present time because of the shortness of the experimental perioc 
other committee members felt that the present Greenough arrangements 
could be extended to other residence halls, as individually appoved 
by the administration. The recommendation of the committee follows 
To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the Greenough principles 
of (1) voluntary participation - all residents of a residence hall 
must agree before plans can be approved, (2) meetings of parents, 
students and administrators must be held before plans can be 
approved, (3) written permission for those under 21, (4) separate 
or segregated floors, and (5) no freshmen, be applied to all co- 
educational residence hall proposals and that the actual implementa 
tion of such proposals be left in the hands of the University ad- 
ministration. 

Trustee Croce, who was recorded in opposition, made the 
following statement: "I am by no means a reactionary. In a 
pluralistic society innovations are certainly to be considered and 
tested. My feeling is that Greenough is an innovation to be con- 
sidered and tested over a period of time, after which if considered 
acceptable, extension to other houses could be considered. I am 
surprised that the Trustees are being confronted, after a period of 
three months, with proposals to establish some ten or twelve other 
coed houses. I am impressed with the present success of the experi 
ment, although I must say that the report was largely generalities, 
and specific answers to questions did not seem to be forthcoming." 

Dr. Croce also questioned the wisdom of self-evaluation 
by those involved in the experiment, as well as the short period 
of time involved as being sufficient basis for extension of the 
experiment to other residence halls. Considerable support for Dr. 
Croce ' s position was expressed. 

Trustee Pumphret expressed concern over the fact that, 
due to timing of the meeting of the Committee on Student Activities, 
full minutes could not be made available for careful study - having 
been distributed at today's meeting (because of mail uncertainties 
the votes only had been mailed). Mr. Pumphret said that he also 
considered that the Greenough experiment should have been for the 
duration of at least a semester, and that the present proposal 
would extend the experiment from 150 students in one house to some 
1200 additional students. He also expressed concern over the small 
number of Trustees present at the Committee on Student Activities 
meeting. 

Chancellor Tippo pointed out that student room choosing 
is next week, and that the issue had been discussed for four hours 
at the Trustee committee meeting. He expressed confidence in the 
Greenough arrangements, saying that he had heard "no adverse 
comment." He noted uniformity of reports from other campuses on 
results of coeducational dormitories - that the "results are always 
good - the morale of the students and study habits are better." 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

He recommended that the Greenough principles be applied to other 
residence halls submitting acceptable proposals. 

Committee Chairman Rowland noted the pressures on the com- 
mittee in terms of time; the short interval between meetings and 
the need of the Dean of Students for a decision in time for April 
room choosing. She reaffirmed her confidence, and that of the ad- 
ministration, in the attitude and conduct of the students involved 
in Greenough and the other coeducational residence hall proposals. 
Chairman Rowland emphasized, however, her firm conviction that it 
was too soon to go beyond the present policy in regard to room 
arrangements . 

Considerable discussion followed, covering general living 
conditions and student behavior in University residence halls, 
particularly in the Southwest Towers, the more natural "family- type 
atmosphere" of a coed dorm, the alienation, loneliness and im= 
personality inherent in a large university situation, the importance 
of the freshman year to a student's college career, the advantages 
of residence-hall classes, and the possible problems of "stamping" 
a Greenough type proposal on other dormitories. It was brought out 
that there had been no negative vote cast among Greenough residents 
on returning to that residence hall next year. 

Arguments in support of adjacent room arrangements were 
made by Mr. Tierney and Miss Pepper of Greenough, Professor Thomas 
Clark of the School of Education, Mr. Hanson of Butterfield, and 
others . 

Mr. Tierney called the Greenough plan "an important ex- 
periment in living in a mass society which could prove useful to the 
Commonwealth." He said Greenough was "a warm place in which to live 
which deals with the sense of anonymity and serves to bring a sense 
of community into focus." Miss Pepper described the segregated 
floors of Greenough as being a major shortcoming of the plan "which 
had not been foreseen and which hampered communications for weeks." 
She saw the Greenough experiment as creating "personal fulfillment 
in concern for others, and personal relationships moving from 
polite acceptance to genuine critique." 

Trustee Knowles expressed concern that the period of time 
now elapsed for the Greenough experiment was too short "for con- 
sideration of something with implications which might reach many 
years into the future." 

Chairman Healey requested votes on the following amend- 
ments which had been made to the Student Activities Committee 
recommendation:

(1) Crowley amendment: 



To move final consideration of the 
issue of coeducational residence hall

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Greenough principles of coed living 

arrangements: (1) voluntary participation - all 
residents of a residence hall must agree before 
plans can be approved, (2) meetings of parents, 
students and administrators must be held before 
plans can be approved, (3) written permission for 
those under 21, (4) separate or segregated floors, 
(5) exclusion of freshmen from the proposal, be 
applied to all coeducational residence hall pro- 
posals now under consideration and that details 
of implementation be left in the hands of the 
UM/ Amherst administration. 

Returning to the regular agenda, under Presidential 
Comments , President Lederle noted that April 22, 1970 was a special 
day which had been designated across the country as "Earth Day." 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

RESOLVED: That the Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts meeting on the Amherst 
campus of the University on April 22, 1970, 
take note of the observance of Earth Day on 
the campuses of colleges and universities 
throughout the United States. The Board 
shares with the students and faculty of the 
University their deep concern for the quality 
of the environment and encourages their 
efforts to develop programs of study, re- 
search, service and action dedicated to the 
improvement of the relation between man and 
his environment.

POLICY ON COMPENSATION FOR CERTAIN ADDITIONAL PROFESSIONAL SERVICES 

Section II. Continuing Education and Public Service 

1. Members of the faculty are permitted to participate, with, 
or without compensation, in programs of a continuing education 
or public service nature requiring their professional services, 
provided such participation conforms to the following stated 
principles: 

(a) Such services shall be performed in programs of 
a continuing education or public service nature which 
are sponsored by the University, and no such faculty 
member shall so participate without the prior written 
consent of the head of his department and the dean of 
his college or school. A record of all such participa- 
tion, including the amount and nature of services and 
rate of compensation, if any, entailed, shall be re- 
ported to the Chancellor, as the case may be. Subject 
to the requirements elsewhere herein contained, ser- 
vices so approved may be performed at any time during 
the calendar year. 

(b) All such services and participation shall be in 
addition to and exclusive of, the regular academic and 
scholarly duties and services to be performed by such 
faculty member, as assigned from time to time by the 
University. 

(c) Compensation, if any-, for participation in such 
programs shall be at the rate established by the Dean 
of Continuing Education with the approval of the 
Chancellor and the President. A faculty member may 
receive, during or with respect to any calendar year, 
such compensation in an amount up to ten (107o) percent 
of his annual salary for regularly assigned duties; 

and a faculty member on a calendar year appointment may 
receive, during or with respect to any such year, such 
compensation in any amount up to twelve (12%) percent 
of his annual salary for such duties. 

(d) Compensation permitted hereunder shall be speci- 
fically in addition to that compensation allowed for 
research activities under Section T. Compensation so 
permitted shall be considered, however, by deans and 
department heads in acting upon requests by faculty 
members for permission to participate, or to perform, 
outside services of a professional nature, with or with- 
out compensation, as described in Section III. 

(e) Notwithstanding any other provision contained in this 
section II, participation in programs of a continuing educa- 
tion and public service nature, as herein provided, shall at 
all times be subject to such further rules of uniform appli- 
cation as the Dean of Continuing Education, with the approval 
of the Chancellor and the President, shall from time to time 
promulgate .

The proposal to convert salaries in the College of Agri- 
culture to Academic Year Contracts had been discussed at length by 
the committee, Chairman Troy said. Action has been deferred pend- 
ing further study. 

The Freiburg Budget had been presented by Dr. Barbara 
Burn, Director of International Programs, and by Dr. Peter Fliess, 
Chairman of the Freiburg Committee. Long-range aspects of the pro- 
gram were also discussed.

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it 



was 



VOTED : To approve the Freiburg budget for fiscal 
year 1971 in principle subject to the 
availability of funds. 

A Major in the Department of Human Development, School of 
Home Economics, as presented by Dr. Ellis Olim, had been discussed 
and recommended. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve establishment of a Major in the 
Department of Human Development, School of 
Home Economics. 

Chairman Troy reviewed new recommendations governing the 
ROTC presence on campus which had been presented by Professor 
Phillips Jones and Associate Provost Allen. Cost of the program, 
academic rank of faculty, course content and limiting of the pro- 
gram to the last two years are to be discussed with the military 
within the framework of negotiation of new contracts after notice 
is given of termination of present contracts. 

Trustee Pumphret requested more specific information on 
this matter, and noted that representatives of the military had 
not been present at the committee meeting. Chancellor Tippo said 
that the present recommendations were primarily based on budgetary 
considerations but that more specific substantive recommendations 
would be brought before the Committee within a few weeks. It is 
felt, Chancellor Tippo said, that the federal government should 
support the costs of the program. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the administration to notify 
the Army and the Air Force of intent to 
terminate the present ROTC contracts at 
the end of the academic year, 1970-71 and 
to negotiate new contracts before the end 
of the academic year 1970-71, to be effective 
at the beginning of the academic year 1971-72.

Dean Shapiro had reported to the committee on the progress 
of reorganization of the College of Arts and Sciences into three 
divisions: Humanities and Fine Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences, 
and Natural Sciences and Mathematics, each with a Dean but with no 
individual in an overall administrative role over the affairs of 
the College. 

Chairman Healey reported for the Executive Committee. A 
long session had been held on April 1 for discussion of UM/A and 
UM/B governance proposals, and UM/A Commencement procedures with 
particular reference to the procedures' for honorary degree nomina- 
tions. Additional work will be necessary on the UM/B proposal be- 
cause of a difference of opinion between faculty and student groups 



After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it 



was 



VOTED : To approve in principle the UM/A Faculty 
Senate proposal on Faculty Participation 
in University Governance (Document T70-062A) 
pending final approval by the Trustees. 

Chancellor Tippo stated that this document would now be- 
come the operating document for the UM/A campus. 

Chairman Healey noted that Commencement procedures had 
been discussed by the Executive Committee, and at the morning in- 
formal session of the Board. The Chairman said that he would out- 
line the new proposals for wider participation in Commencement 
plans and that these proposals would be sent to Senior Class Presi- 
dent Veale for consideration. He would hope, Chairman Healey said, 
to have a definite procedure approved before Commencement 1970, for 
involvement of students, faculty, administrators and alumni in the 
selection process of honorary degree recipients and the Commence- 
ment speaker. 

Chairman Healey noted the matter pending in the Legisla- 
ture re the 22-acre parcel of land formerly owned by the City of 
Boston on the north side of the Columbia Point site. 



was 



After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it 



RESOLVED: That it is the intention of the Board of 

Trustees of the University of Massachusetts, 
assuming no contrary direction of the Legis- 
lature, to work cooperatively with the resi- 
dents of Columbia Point for development and 
utilization of the area in the best inter- 
ests of the community and the University 
at Boston, hopefully within the existing 
timetable .

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On the occasion of Miss Cynthia Olken's replacement as 
student Trustee by a newley elected Student Senate President, Chair- 
man Healey took special note of Miss Olken's contribution to the 
Board saying: "The Board of Trustees has had a new experience this 
year with a delightful person, very bright, very much the spokesman 
for the students at this University. I think I express the senti- 
ments of the entire Board when I extend to Cindi Olken appreciation 
for her service on this Board. It ought not be measured in terms 
of time, but in terms of contribution: the first is short but the 
second, great. Good luck to you, Cindi, as you become an alumna of 
this University. Please continue to give us as much advice and 
direction as you can. When you go out the doors as a student, 
please stay involved in the affairs of this University." 

Chairman Healey left the meeting for another commitment in 
Boston and President Lederle assumed the chair. 

Committee Chairman Haigis presented the Report of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds . He noted that the meeting of 
the committee on March 31 on the rent situation had been "sparsely 
attended" by Trustees due to a major storm, and that all recommen- 
dations of the committee had been voted at the later meeting of 
April 15, 1970. (Discussion of the rent issue, and other matters, 
is fully detailed in the minutes of the meetings of March 31 and 
April 15.) 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To include Brett and Gorman Houses in the 

rent schedules for traditional dormitories. 

The new rent schedules detailed in Document T70-090 - 
revised were recommended. Reading of all votes in the schedule was 
waived as the Trustees had previously studied the document. 

Mr. Albert, Chairman of the President's Rent Committee, 
was present but declined to comment. President Lederle expressed 
appreciation for Mr. Albert's leadership of the group that had 
shaved the original figures at the same time recognizing the re- 
sponsibility of the dormitories "carrying their own way." Pro- 
fessor Ludtke and Mr. Albert have done a very fine job and we 
appreciate it," the President said. 

Chairman Haigis said that Mills and Arnold Houses would 
be the subject of a continuing study. 

After general discussion, it was therefore moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Schedule of Room Rents and 
Fees (Document T70-090) as revised, which 
document is attached to and becomes a part 
of these minutes.

property in Gloucester are nearing completion. 

Establishment of a Chair in the Department of Government 
to be named for former Governor Joseph B. Ely has been proposed. 
Governor Ely, a native of Westfield and a practicing attorney

Trustee Gordon noted that Dean Gagnon, UM/B would be away 
next academic year on a sabbatical leave. He urged a resolution 
citing the Dean's effective role in the planning and inception of 
the University campus at Boston, whereupon it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : RESOLVED: that the Board of Trustees record 
its appreciation of the role played by Dean 
Paul Gagnon, UM/Boston in the establishment of

following petition carrying 1226 signatures: 

"We, the undersigned students of the University 
Massachusetts/Boston, petition that the Board of 
Trustees take immediate action and approve the

Mr. Higgins stated that the required student vote had been 
set at two-thirds of the student body and had fallen short by only 
18 votes. He said that the University Senate as proposed "would 
provide significant participation by students and junior faculty,

something which does not exist in any way, shape or form at the 
present time." Mr. Higgins further stated that the Chancellor 
had informed him of no mechanism underway for another student vote. 
He also expressed confidence that a majority student vote could be 
provided on short notice. 



President Lederle said, "We have listened and are 
sympathetic." He suggested that the Boston group work through 
normal channels on a formal vote of the student body so that early 
action might be taken. 

The meeting was adjourned at 5:00 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. Wood is currently Director of the Joint Center for 
Urban Studies at MIT and Harvard, head of the department of political 
science at MIT and Chairman of the Board of the Massachusetts Bay 
Transportation Authority. He is a former Under Secretary and 
Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 
and has also served as consultant to several federal agencies on 
urban affairs, housing, and mass transportation. He is a recognized 
authority in the field of metropolitan politics and government, and 
has written and collaborated on many books and articles in the field 
of public affairs. He has also conducted studies in the area of 
science and public policy. 

Dr. Wood was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He served with 
the 76th Infantry during World War II and was graduated from Prince- 
ton University in 1946. He received a Master of Public Administra- 
tion degree in 1947 from Harvard University, an M.A. degree in 1948, 
and a Ph.D. in 1950. 

Dr. Wood then made the following statement to the Board: 

"Mr. Chairman. 

"At the present time no one lightly undertakes the 
direction of any University. Across the country, the purpose and 
goals of the United States are called to question so severely as to 
constitute a national crisis and our universities and colleges are 
in the vanguard of that criticism. 

"The University of Massachusetts on its three campuses en- 
gages the minds and wills of some 23,000 students each year. 
Commands $47 million in public monies. Even in the best of times, 
undertaking leadership of this large enterprise is a substantial 
responsibility. 

"Yet, I think the hour for public education of excellence 
and depth in Massachusetts is at hand. Ten years ago John Kennedy 
called for 'a peaceful revolution of hope,' and suggested that 
'civility is not a sign of weakness and sincerity is always subject 
to proof. ' We seem a long way from these purposes today. But if we 
are to retrieve them, we begin with the university. 

"At this time of special anxiety, when doubts, uncertain- 
ties and fears sweep the nation, it is important to say again, with 
Jefferson, that the foundation of this democracy rests upon as close 
to universal education as it is humanly possible to achieve and as 
much education as it is humanly possible to absorb. We need to im- 
prove our educational processes rapidly; to distinguish among kinds 
of higher education carefully; to match individual aspirations and 
capabilities with programs much better than we have before. But we 
must never waiver in our faith in education to insure productive 
enterprise, rational thought and energetic citizenship. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

"To be sure, we must be prepared to change the practices 
of higher education rapidly and drastically. We want to open old 
sanctuaries of prerogatives and privileges that have outlived their 
functions; admit to participation, in keeping with their special 
competencies, all who have a stake in university life. But we must 
never forget what the purpose of the university is: to expand our 
knowledge of the world, the universe and ourselves and to transmit 
that knowledge to all who care or need to know. We must never 
practice politics on the university for the sake of politics or 
practice. 

"Mr. Chairman, in accepting this post, I am conscious of 
the other responsibilities I give up next October. 

"Half of my working life I have spent at MIT and I do not 
easily leave a great technological institute that has been so good 
to me. The fact that I will have a university professorship in 
political science and will teach on the respective campuses means 
that I will still be in contact with reality -- but the loss of 
leaving MIT is also real. 

"In addition, for ten years I have been associated with 
the MIT-Harvard Joint Center for Urban Studies, and for the last 
fifteen months I have been its director. I believe that Center can 
advance the quality of life in our cities. I am glad therefore, 
that its Visiting Committee has pledged to assure the financial 
commitments necessary for its future, and that strong faculty ele- 
ments in both universities are likewise dedicated to its expansion. 
I hope the University of Massachusetts System will have an opportu- 
nity to work in collaboration with the Center or to develop comple- 
mentary and parallel enterprises. 

"Finally, I find my time as Chairman of the MBTA to be as 
rewarding and stimulating an assignment as I have ever had. I in- 
tend to continue to be an active Chairman until next fall. 

"Mr. Chairman, in this transition and in the future, I 
will need your help, that of your fellow trustees, the retiring 
President, John Lederle, my colleagues, chancellors and deans, the 
faculty, the students of all three campuses, the Governor and the 
General Court, and, most of all, the people of Massachusetts who 
believe their sons and daughters deserve the right to learn, to 
know, and to serve. Given that help, I pledge you the best in 
energy, judgment, and experience I have. 

"This Commonwealth can and must have a first-class public 
university system." 



Dr. Wood and Chairman Healey then left the meeting for a 
press conference which had been scheduled in an adjoining room. 
Trustee Crowley assumed the chair for the interim period.

ROTC - 
UM/ Amherst 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman pro tem Crowley requested identification of a 
leader or leaders of the UM/Boston group for purposes of presenting 
a statement of their views, but no one present wished to be so 
identified. Chairman Crowley then recognized Mr. Dillon who 
described himself as "a former employee of UM/Boston, representing 
the students, but not now a student." Mr. Dillon spoke on the theme 
which was the focus of most of the speakers: the immediate abolish- 
ment of ROTC on the Amherst campus. Many other speakers identifying 
themselves as students spoke on this issue and, to a lesser degree, 
of other aspects of the student strike. 

Other speakers, largely representing the UM/B faculty, 
spoke of the importance of reasonable and peaceful means of protest. 
Some expressed disappointment over a recent apparent change of some 
forms and directions of the strike movement at UM/Boston. 

Individual trustees rebutted the charge made by some of 
the student speakers that the Board was "capitalist" and "fascist." 

The history of ROTC on campuses of Land-Grant institutions 
was traced (it was an integral part of the program from the be- 
ginning) , and it was emphasized by several trustees that the entire 
question of military training on campus was now under study by the 
Board and would continue to have careful scrutiny before any final 
decisions were made. 

At the conclusion of the press conference, Dr. Wood and 
Chairman Healey returned to the meeting. The Chairman expressed re- 
gret that the press conference could not have been held in Stanbro 
Hall so that those present could have heard firsthand the views ex- 
pressed by Dr. Wood. 

Dr. Wood then stated for the record that he had been asked 
about ROTC and had responded as follows: "I come from two institu- 
tions that have gone in divergent ways. MIT has it 'under study' 
and Harvard has put it off campus and non-credit. I understand that 
the Board will probably make its decision prior to my assumption of 
office. But, if asked for my advice, it is this: Every ROTC course 
might have to be re-examined as to whether or not it is in fact an 
academic exercise and that will settle, in the process of examina- 
tion, many questions. Secondly, it is clear that today as a visible 
ordinary, orthodox part of a campus it has little place. Third, 
opportunities to any person who wants to learn how to serve in the 
military ought to be made available on an individual basis and that 
opportunity is a matter of choice." 

Speaking of the student strike, Dr. Wood referred to 
"years of student disaffection. . .and student anguish" and said, 
"It is critical that if we are going to say that the universities 
and colleges protest. .. that we do this not only effectively but in 
a way people know we mean it." 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A member of the UM/Boston group asked Dr. Wood if he had 
said that he would "support ROTC on campus, but without credit." 
Dr. Wood replied, "I did not say 'on campus.' I said three things: 
one, historically ROTC was a way through which people could support 
themselves through college. So first let us examine courses for 
academic or non-academic characteristics; if non-academic they 
don't belong on a campus. Second, it may very well be that we 
don't want this kind of training on campus anyway; this is an issue 
to be decided and talked about. Third, we do not make it impossible 
for this kind of instruction by the Department of Defense to go 
forward." 

The general discussion continued until Chairman Healey 
adjourned the meeting. Due to the lateness of adjournment, it was 
necessary to reschedule the Executive Committee meeting which had 
been scheduled to follow the planned special session of the full 
Board of Trustees. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:35 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pres- 
ent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was con 
vened by Chairman Healey at 2:20 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting having been circulated 
and read, motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on April 22, 1970. 

President Lederle reviewed details of a proposed agree- 
ment between UM/Amherst and Local 1776 and Council 41 of the Ameri- 
can Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFL-CIO) 
for collective bargaining Unit 5, Food Service employees. This 
agreement is a supplementary to the Master Agreement which became 
effective May 12, 1969. It has been submitted for review to Mr. 
Edward Kuypers of Commissioner Dwight's office, and had also been 
previously circulated to the members of the Board. The employees 
covered by this agreement, it was noted, are the employees in the 
dining commons, the Campus Center and the Student Union, and the 
Infirmary. 

There being no objection, President Lederle will proceed 
to implement the University's obligations under Chapter 637 of the 
Acts of 1964, as amended, and as authorized at the Trustee meeting 
of November 21, 1966. 

Chairman Haigis presented the report of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds. He reviewed first the agreement between the 
Savin Hill Yacht Club and UM/Boston. This agreement imposes certain 
restrictions upon building, and land use on Yacht Club property in 
the interest of enhancement and protection of the Columbia Point

campus, Vice-chancellor Hamilton noted that a payment of $2000 is to 
be made to the Savin Hill Yacht Club as consideration for this grant 
of restrictions. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Vice-Chancellor William R. Hamilton to 

accept on behalf of the Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts the Grant of Restrictions offered by the 
Savin Hill Yacht Club. (Document T70-117) 

Chairman Haigis reviewed the progress of negotiations 
between Columbia Point and Boston College High School re certain 
property at Columbia Point. The Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
recommends that Vice-Chancellor Hamilton be authorized to proceed 
with negotiations on the basis of appraisals which have now been made 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Vice-chancellor William R. Hamilton to 

proceed with negotiations for a certain parcel of land 
now owned by Boston College High School on the basis of 
appraisals which have now been made. 

Chairman Haigis reviewed problems which had arisen in con- 
nection with the Site Plan Report—Columbia Point issued by the 
engineering firm of Charles T. Main. The main body of the Report- 
Conceptual Phase 1A-- Preliminary Report (Document T70-118) was con- 
sidered acceptable by the committee. The Addendum to this Report, 
which refused liability for certain site problems, was rejected by 
the committee, however, and is to be resubmitted. 

Commissioner Dwight's letter to the Board of Trustees re 
Columbia Point site problems, and Mr. Healey's reply of May 21 were 
previously circulated to all Trustees. The matter was also dis- 
cussed personally with Commissioner Dwight on May 20. 



Committee Chairman Haigis read into the record a paragraph 
from Mr. Healey's letter of May 21: "The Board of Trustees is pay- 
ing particular attention to the problem of methane gas. Although th< 
site engineer had initially disclaimed responsibility for this prob- 
lem, expert engineering consultants have been retained by the Bureau 
of Building Construction. Detailed studies of the gas problems, 
which arise from the decomposition of refuse on the site, are already 
on the way with the objective of determining the extent, the location, 
and the concentration point of the gas. Known and proven building 
techniques will be employed to deal with this problem. We are 
informed that the problem of dealing with methane gas is indeed no 
more serious, and even less expensive, than dealing with water drain 
age problems beneath the buildings." 

Chairman Haigis stated that the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds as well as the Executive had discussed in depth all problems 
connected with the site. It was the consensus that site problems 
were certainly not insurmountable- -that Columbia Point was, in fact,

"one of the great sites." Chairman Healey noted that site develop- 
ment was, on the whole, proceeding more favorably than was originally 
anticipated. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Conceptual Phase 1A--Preliminary Report- 
Columbia Point (Document T70-118) as submitted by the 
engineering firm of Charles T. Main, Inc., subject to 
budgetary restrictions of $19,000,000. 

Chairman Haigis reported on discussion by the Buildings and 
Grounds Committee of use of dormitory rooms by conferees during inter 
session. This matter is to have further study. 

Chairman Haigis also reported that bids on the Belchertown 
Pomology Storage Building have come in within the appropriation at 
approximately $300,000. 

Committee Chairman Pumphret reported on the Finance Commit- 
tee meeting of May 13. The committee had reviewed the investment 
situation with investment counsel, Standish, Ayer and Wood, and had 
accepted the recommendations for changes in the portfolio. (Docu- 
ment T70-108) 

The first endowment fund for UM/Boston had been discussed 
by the committee. This fund is to be established by friends and 
classmates in the name of the late Brian Rattigan, a poet and member 
of the Class of 1969. Contributions to the fund shall be held in 
trust to provide scholarship funds in recognition of creative 
achievement. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was therefore 

VOTED : To approve establishment of an endowment fund, UM/Boston 
in the name of Brian Rattigan in accordance with the 
terms of the gift as detailed in Document T70-121. 

Revision of the present Disability Insurance Plan to 
include professional and nonprofessional employees throughout the 
University system was discussed. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To extend the disability insurance coverage plan con- 
tract presently in force for professional employees at 
all campuses to cover nonprofessional staff on all 
campuses of the University system at the same premium 
currently being paid by the professional staff,

Trustee Gordon, Chairman of- the Committee on Government 
and University Relations, presented a brief report for that committee: 
He noted that the committee is continuing to review legislative 
action. He also reviewed progress made to date in studying possi- 
bilities for establishing a unit tentatively named the Municipal 
Services Institute. This would provide system-wide liaison with the 
351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. Action is crystallizing 
in several areas, Trustee Gordon said. The committee expects to be 
meeting President-Designate Wood during the summer and will report 
back to the full Board in the fall. 

Chairman Healey reported for the Executive Committee, not- 
ing that President-Designate Wood is currently meeting with heads of 
all three campuses. 

Citing the need of the Medical School to have available th« 
services of legal counsel in Worcester to handle continuing agree- 
ments with local institutions, including hospitals, Chairman Healey

Second Amendment 
Contract for 
Financial 
Assistance - 

Eleventh Project 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Treasurer Johnson noted that all fee schedules had been 
studied in great detail by the Executive Committee, and have been 
voted upon favorably by the Student Union Governing Board. All 
details of the Campus Center operation have been carefully studied 
by the Office of the Treasurer and by the Board of Trustees both in 
committee and at full Board sessions. The suggested schedules for 
financing are projected test rates, for the first year of operation 
only. Successful amortization of the project are indicated despite 
rising costs due to inflation. Exact schedules cannot be determined 
until the project is in actual operation. 

Due to escalation, the total cost of the project now must 
be set at $20,500,000, Treasurer Johnson said. He added that the 
Student Union Governing Board, and students in general, are "well 
aware that the fees voted this year only, and that an increase of $15 
in the student use fee is projected for each of the next two years." 

Chairman Healey noted that the Campus Center is a very com- 
plex building and emphasized two points that had been made during the 
general discussion: (1) that the differential in fees for the use of 
the Campus Center which grants a lower rate to graduate students than 
to undergraduates is based on actual student use of the building, and 
(2) that the fee structure is not based on actual experience but on 
estimates, and that fees are expected to increase. 

After further general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : RESOLVED: That the making of a Second Amendment to the 

Contract for Financial Assistance dated as of January 31. 
1967., between The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Uni 
versity of Massachusetts Building Authority pursuant to 

Chapter 773 of the Acts of 1960 as amended and providing 
among other things, for an increase in the Maximum Cost 
of the Project for which such Contract pertains, be and 
the same hereby is authorized; that the form of such 
Amendment presented to this meeting and each term, con- 
dition and provision therein contained be and the same 
hereby are approved; that said Trustees or a majority 
thereof be and hereby are authorized, in the name and on 
behalf of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts to sign, 
acknowledge if deemed advisable and deliver an Amendment 
in the form presented to this meeting and providing, 
among other things, for a Maximum Cost of the Eleventh 
Project, as defined in said Contract as heretofore 
amended, of Twenty Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars 
($20,500,000) and to cause Trustees to be affixed 
thereto; and that the taking of such action by said 
Trustees shall be conclusive evidence that the same is 
hereby authorized and that the form of Amendment so 
executed is as hereby authorized and approved. 

After further discussion, it was, therefore, moved, 
seconded and 



VOTED :

Chairman Healey reviewed the question of Revision of Honor ' 



ary Degree Procedures which has been discussed at great length by the 
Executive Committee. The proposal made last November by Senior Class 
President David Veale has had careful consideration, as have other

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

proposals. It is the recommendation of the Executive Committee, 
Chairman Healey said, that a procedure somewhere between existing 
procedures and the Senior Class proposal (Document T70-124) should 
be tried. He stressed the responsibility of the Board of Trustees 
as the state's sole honorary degree granting authority. He noted 
the interest and the stake of the Commonwealth in this matter. 

The Proposed Revision- -Honorary Degree Procedures, 1970-- 
(Document T70-122) has been circulated to other members of the Board 
of Trustees and to the Senior Class through Mr. Veale. Briefly, 
Chairman Healey said, the proposal would establish yearly an Advisory 
Committee on Honorary Degrees consisting of two members of the incom- 
ing Senior Class designated by its President, two members of the 
faculty designated by the Faculty Senate, a representative of the 
Alumni designated by its President, and the Chancellor of UM/ Amherst. 
The Advisory Committee will participate in discussions and will be 
informed of the status of all nominations. Screening of nominees, 
and final selection, however, will remain the responsibility of the 
Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Lyons said that he was not expressing opposition, 
but disappointment, that the procedure "was not more streamlined." 
He had hoped, he said, that a campus committee could do the work of 
the Executive Committee. He proposed that the revised procedures be 
approved on a trial basis for a year. 

Chairman Healey pointed out the major change, which is to 
allow student participation at every stage of the selection process. 
He also emphasized the importance of procedures being handled in com- 
plete confidentiality. 

Mr. Veale, Senior Class President, expressed agreement with 
Trustee Lyons' position, adding that it "seemed as though the whole 
proposal is based on fear--fear that students might leak information. 
The Senior Class proposal, he said, is more streamlined and effective 
with more active student participation. Trustee Troy observed that 
he had been under the impression, when the matter had first been dis- 
cussed with the Trustees, that the students then wished to have more 
information on honorary degree candidates. Mr. Veale responded that 
what students wanted was a,part in the decision-making process. He 
said they did not wish to remove any of the actual powers of the 
Executive Committee. 

Chairman Healey, for the' Executive Committee, recommended 
that the Revision—Honorary Degree Procedures, 1970--be adopted for a 
trial period. 



After further discussion, and on motion made and seconded, 



it was 



VOTED : xo approve, for a trial period, the Revision of 

Honorary Degree Procedures, 1970 (Document T70-122).

Trustee Lyons reported briefly as Delegate to the Board of 
Higher Education . At the last meeting of the BHE, he said, the 
staff had been authorized to do preliminary work on preparation of a 
Master Plan for Higher Education. Mr. Lyons emphasized the fact that 
the proposal is "new and tentative," and that authorization for the 
plan itself has not been made. He added that the plan is wide in 
scope, and would involve among other issues, the role of the BHE in 
relation to the Board of Trustees. Reports on this matter will be 
circulated to the University administration. After review by the 
administration, and by President-Designate Wood, Trustee Lyons said, 
the proposal will come to the Board of Trustees for detailed discus- 
sion. 

Chancellor Tippo recommended approval of the graduate and 
undergraduate degrees to be awarded at Commencement on May 30, 1970. 
Since the list is not fully certified, the vote must be conditional. 
The Chancellor noted that 2216 Bachelor's Degrees, 331 Master's 
Degrees, 45 Ph.D. Degrees, 14 Ed.D. Degrees, and 2 Five-College Ph.D. 
Degrees are being awarded. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the lists of graduate and undergraduate 

degrees, UM/Amherst, awarded as of May 30, 1970, sub j eel: 
to each person meeting the academic and other require- 
ments as may be appropriate, and subject to certifica- 
tion at the earliest possible date by the Office of the 
Registrar. 

Dean Gagnon recommended approval of the approximately 610 
undergraduate degrees to be awarded at the UM/Boston Commencement on 
June 12, 1970. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the lists of undergraduate degrees to be 

awarded June 12, 1970, UM/Boston, subject to each per- 
son meeting the academic and other requirements as may 
be appropriate, and subject to certification at the 
earliest possible date by the Office of the Registrar. 

Chairman Troy reported on meetings of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy held on May 1 and May 18. On May 1 
the committee had considered a proposal to establish a Department of 
Hispanic Languages and Literatures, UM/Amherst. This proposal was 
reviewed by Professor Rothberg, Acting Chairman of the Hispanic Sec- 
tion within the Department of Romance Languages. The proposal is 
fully detailed in Document T70-102, and is endorsed by Acting Dean 
Shapiro of the College of Arts and Sciences and by Professor Taylor, 
Head of the Department of Romance Languages. 

After discussion and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Department of Hispanic 
Languages and Literatures within the College of Arts and

Chairman Troy next presented for approval the recommenda-

Romance Languages, UM/Amherst, be renamed the Department of French, 
Italian, and Classics. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the proposal to rename the Department of 

Romance Languages as the Department of French, Italian 
and Classics, UM/Amherst. 

Chairman Troy reviewed the proposal to establish a Bache- 
lor's Degree with Individual Concentration, UM/Amherst, which had 
been presented to the committee by Associate Provost Allen. This is 
essentially a two-year pilot program to be limited to approximately 
60 students in which an individual concentration of work will replace 
some of the standard requirements 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Bachelor's Degree 

with Individual Concentration, UM/Amherst, as detailed 
in Document T70-103. 

Tenure Recommendations, UM/Boston and UM/Amherst, as 
reviewed by the committee, were presented for approval by Committee 
Chairman Troy. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was

It was also

April 27, 1970, as detailed in Document T70-105. 

Discontinuance of the divisional system at UM/Boston had 
been discussed by the committee. Looking to the future multiple-eol-' 
lege system at UM/Boston, it had been pointed out that the end of 
this academic year would be a logical time at which to phase out the 
present divisions. 

It was, therefore, moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve discontinuance of the Divisional System, 
UM/Boston, as of August 1970. 

Chairman Troy next reviewed the meeting of the Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy on May 18. Course revisions and 
program proposals, UM/Boston, were discussed at the morning session. 



3357 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Graduate Program Development, UM/Boston, had been discussed 
by Professors Antonoff of Physics, Becker of Chemistry, Kaplan of 
Biology, and Tanimoto of Mathematics. Plans call for modest begin- 
nings of graduate programs at the present Park Square location in 
1971, with major development coming after opening of the Columbia 
Point campus. The strong commitment of the faculty to a quality 
graduate program was emphasized. Details of the program will be pre- 
sented at a later date. Chairman Troy noted that the projected 
enrollment figures for UM/Boston would add up to a total of 15,000 
students (12,000 undergraduates and 3,000 graduate students). 

Chairman Troy described the Afro-American Studies Concen- 
tration, UM/Boston, which had been presented by Professors Sarotte 
and Gittleman of the Afro-American Society and by Miss Lima and Mr. 
White, former UM/Boston students. This program differs substantially 
from that of UM/Amherst in that it is essentially one of enrichment 
of courses within the efforts to integrate rather than separate non- 
Western course material within the regular University program. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve an Afro-American Studies Concentration, 
UM/Boston, as detailed in Document T70-112. 

Chairman Troy reviewed, for information purposes only, the 
establishment of a University Film Studies Center at UM/Boston--a 
consortium of major colleges and universities organized largely 
through the efforts of Professor Robert Risse of the UM/Boston fac- 
ulty. Participation by UM/Boston in this project is expected to 
enrich greatly the Theatre Arts Program and an eventual Fine Arts 
Major. 

The committee recommendation to establish a Major in Ital- 
ian Language and Literature, UM/Boston, was presented for approval. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve establishment of a Major in Italian Language 
and Literature, UM/Boston, as detailed in Document 
T70-114. 

It was also moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve establishment of a Theatre Arts subdepartment 
UM/Boston, as detailed in Document T70-115. 

English Course Revisions--UM/Boston had been discussed by 
Professor James Broderick, Chairman of the Department. Professor 
Broderick noted that these revisions in introductory English courses 
ere necessary because of the generally poor preparation of entering 
students. Courses have been restructured to provide a change in 
emphasis from "Great Books" to providing the essentials of English 
usage.

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the English Course Revisions, UM/Boston, as 
detailed in Document T70-116. 

Chairman Troy next summarized the afternoon session on 
May 18, which had been devoted to discussion of ROTC, UM/Amherst. 
Colonel Connolly of ROTC and Colonel Friedman of AFROTC , cadets ( and 
spokesmen for the anti-ROTC group had been present. The Faculty 
Senate proposals of November 20, 1969, and January 29, 1970, recom- 
mended as the basis for negotiation of ROTC and AFROTC contracts, 
were discussed. Professor Phillips Jones, Chairman, reviewed the 
Reports of the Military Affairs Subcommittee of the Faculty Senate 
Committee on Academic Matters. Everyone present felt, Chairman Troy 
said, that the problem of ROTC should not be considered merely in the 
context of present discontents. He added that he viewed the Report 
of the Military Affairs Subcommittee as an essential basis for dis- 
cussion. 

Chairman Troy noted the basic points of disagreement 
between the Faculty Senate proposals and the view of the ROTC command 
here and elsewhere, as to the necessary requirements for an effective 
program, as follows: 

1. The Faculty Senate would limit the program to two years. 
The Military believes that a two-year program is a most 
serious handicap in recruitment and evaluation of cadets. 

2. The Faculty Senate would give credit for academic courses 
(if taught by regular faculty or as "team-teaching") but no 
credit for technical courses in military science and prac- 
tice. The Military states that this is "unfair." They sub- 
mit that their staff is highly trained and that course con- 
tent compares favorably with other University courses. 

3. The Faculty Senate feels strongly that the federal govern- 
ment should support the entire costs of the program. The 
Military challenges the justness of the faculty analysis of 
costs of the program, especially the depreciation costs 
charged to Dickinson Hall, the building used by both ROTC 
and AFROTC on the UM/Amherst campus. 

After much discussion of the issue, Chairman Troy said, the 
committee voted to go along with the Faculty Senate recommendations. 
The committee was swayed, he added, by the fact that the faculty com- 
mittee had presented such an extensive report. "On all matters con- 
cerning academic standards and the quality of the curriculum, the 
University must listen to the voice of the faculty above all others. 
That is their special competence," he said. Inherent in use of the 
term "negotiation," Chairman Troy added, is the element of flexi- 
bility. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Since the committee meeting, however, Chairman Troy 
reported, at least one member of the committee had had "second 
thoughts." Trustee Maginnis proposes to withdraw his vote and to 
offer amendments to the proposal. Chairman Troy then read the vote 
of the committee as it had been proposed: 

To recommend to the Board of Trustees that they approve 
the Faculty Senate Proposals dated November 20, 1969, and 
January 29, 1970, as the basis for renegotiation of ROTC 
and AFROTC contracts, i.e., (1) academic courses in the 
ROTC program be taught by regular faculty from academic 
departments for academic credit, (2) courses of a more 
military nature be taught by military officers for no aca- 
demic credit, (3) the ROTC program be limited to two years, 
and (4) the title of Lecturer be used for officer personnel 
other than the senior officer who would be granted the 
title of professor. 

Chairman Healey then opened the matter to discussion. 

Trustee Rowland stated that, while she had read most of the 
material recently mailed out on the issue, she and most other Board 
members had not had an opportunity previously to hear first hand the 
various points of view. For this reason, she felt strongly that she 
did not consider herself in a position to cast a vote pro or con at 
the present time. She would hope, she said, that the members of the 
Board could have more of an opportunity to study this and other mate- 
rial on the subject. 

Chairman Healey stated that he was in basic agreement with 
Trustee Rowland's position. 

Trustee Lyons said that, as a member of the committee, he 
was prepared to support the committee recommendation. He appreciated, 
however, the position of other members of the Board who did not feel 
that they had had sufficient opportunity for study and discussion. 
He suggested that the matter be tabled for a month. 

Trustee Pumphret, referring to the minutes of the meeting o:: 
May 18, asked for specific details as to which group had "found ROTC 
academically acceptable in 1963." Colonel Friedman replied that thifc 
had been the National Commission on Accrediting, the same group which 
accredits such institutions as the University of Massachusetts. 
Colonel Connolly, responding to Trustee Pumphret 1 s question, named 
several institutions currently trying out a two-year program 

Trustee Abrams asked if figures were available to show the 
number of students who actually finish the program. Colonel Friedman 
replied that he did not have exact figures at hand, but that current 
anti-ROTC pressures on campuses had obviously contributed to lowering 
of the number of applicants in general, thus reducing somewhat the 
degree of selectivity in filling quotas. Colonel Connolly observed 
that, in general, students entering as freshmen could be expected to 

graduate from the ROTC program.

General Maginnis requested the Secretary to obtain and cir- 
culate to the Board pertinent material, specifically re Land Grant 
institutions on the effect of reducing or abolishing ROTC programs on 
federal grants to such institutions. Colonels Friedman and Connolly 
are requested to supply information they consider relevant. The Ben 
son Report is to be included in material to be mailed to Trustees, as 
well as all available statistics and information on the entire matter 
of ROTC programs. Trustee Gordon specifically requested information 
"as to what other colleges and universities are doing." 

Chancellor Tippo stated for the record that the Faculty 
Senate has recently passed a resolution urging the Administration to 
expedite the matter. 

Trustee Lyons asked that the ROTC issue not be referred 
back to the committee, but rather to the full Board. Trustee Row- 
land, and other Trustees, concurred. 

On motion made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED : To table the recommendation of the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy of May 18 re the ROTC and AFROTC 
Programs, UM/Amherst, and to consider this matter as a 
prime agenda item at the meeting of the full Board of 
Trustees on June 29. 

President Lederle presented the recommendation of the 
Director of Security, John C. Marchant, that the appointment of 
David P. Houle as Auxiliary Police Officer be confirmed. 

It was, therefore, moved, seconded and 

VOTED : In accordance with the provisions of Section 32A of 

Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended by Chapter 648 
of the Acts of 1962 which provides in part: "The Trus^ 
tees may appoint as police officers persons in the 
employ of the University who in the enforcement of said 
rules and regulations (i.e., for the control, movement, 
and parking of vehicles on the campus of the University 
and on other land of the University) and throughout Uni- 
versity property shall have the powers of police offic- 
ers except as to service of civil process"; the follow-

In part, he said: "I would like to express my thanks as I 
leave my Deanship to the President and the members of the Board of 
Trustees for having allowed me the chance to help build a campus at 
Park Square and at Columbia Point. It has been exciting, it has 
been absorbing and educational. I hope that I leave the task some- 
what wiser than when I took it up. 

"I think every one here will understand if I single out 
Chancellor Tippo for special thanks. His peculiar kind of thorni- 
ness and his famous kind of impatience has been responsible for most 
of the more intelligent things I have been able to do. We have had 
a good many disagreements over the past six years, and in looking 
over them I think I was right twenty percent of the time and he has 
been right thirty percent--the rest of the time we have both been 
completely wrong. With this record, I am looking forward to joining 
the Department of History at UM/Boston. Again, I would like to 
express my deep gratitude for the chance to work at a task which has 
been very much worth doing." 

Professor Henry Korson, Faculty Senate Representative, com 
menting on the recent uncertainties and tensions on campus in rela- 
tion to the student strike, said: "Speaking for myself, may I say 
that I have been very, very impressed with the way the Chancellor 
and members of the administration have been able to take the kind of 
pressures which have come from every direction. No one has been 
absolutely right all of the time. I, for one, am very grateful for 
the fact that no buildings have been burned or blown up, no skulls 
have been cracked, no police have been called on the campus, etc. 
Not everyone is in agreement, but that is part of the learning pro- 
cess. We hope next year will be a quieter year. My hat is off to 
the Chancellor and the administration."

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pres- 
ent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was con- 
vened by Chairman Healey at 2:00 p.m. 

Dr. Chester Cross, Head of the Wareham Experiment Station,! Welcoming 
gave welcoming remarks. He spoke informally of the Station's history Remarks-- 
and current research programs. The first building on the site was Dr. Chester 
erected in 1912. The new building, recently completed, was designed Cross 
by the University staff and completed, Dr. Cross said, "without bene- 
fit of architects." The staff is justifiably proud of the design 
and equipment of the facility, which is a major center for pesticide 
research. Much of the definitive work in this field is being done 
at Wareham. 

Dr. Cross has been at Wareham part-time since 1937 and 
full-time since 1941. He noted the enviable record of longevity of 
service among the staff ef the Station. He also noted the diversity 
of the staff, numbering as it does among its members a meteorologist , 
a nematologist , a biochemist, and a plant physiologist. "We really 
have here," Dr. Cross said, "a miniature College of Agriculture."

Re ROTC 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Lederle, noting that it was his last meeting as 
President, said, "I have appreciated your support. I am pleased with 
the man you have chosen as my successor and pleased that he is able 
to take over the job three months earlier than anticipated. I will 
continue to cooperate in any way I can to support this fine Univer- 
sity we have been building and I want to thank you all for your sup- 
port over the years." 

The Report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was next presented by Committee Chairman Troy, who noted that 
the matter of ROTC--Amherst Campus was the sole item of the committee 
report. Chairman Troy reviewed action taken since the committee 
meeting of April 13, 1970, when the subject had first been presented 
for discussion and the committee had voted for renegotiation of pres- 
ent ROTC and AFROTC contracts. The committee was especially con- 
cerned at that time, Chairman Troy said, about financing of the pro- 
gram and had felt that the program costs should be borne totally by 
the federal government. 

At the last meeting of the Board on May 29, it was pointed 
out, Chairman Troy said, that there was no feeling among the Faculty 
Senate or the Trustees that ROTC had no place on the Amherst campus. 
"Rather," he said, "it was felt to be an important element of 
strength in our national defense posture." In spite of that con- 
sensus, Chairman Troy said, there were certain basic disagreements 
between the faculty group and the members of the military depart- 
ments concerned; these are detailed in the minutes of the meeting of 
May 29, 1970. "Implicit in the term 'negotiations,'" the Chairman 
added, "is the element of flexibility; it was on this basis that the 
Trustees had accepted the original recommendations of the Faculty 
Senate." 

The ROTC recommendations of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy had been tabled by the full Board at the meeting 
of May 29, Chairman Troy said, and Trustee Maginnis has proposed 
amendments to that motion. The motion, as tabled on May 29, follows: 

To recommend to the Board of Trustees that they approve the 
Faculty Senate Proposals dated November 20, 1969, and January 29,, 
1970, as the basis for renegotiation of ROTC and AFROTC con- 
tracts; i.e., (1) academic courses in the ROTC program be taught 
by regular faculty from academic departments for academic credit 
(2) courses of a more military nature be taught by military 
officers for no academic credit, (3) the ROTC program be limitec 
to two years, and (4) the title of ! Lecturer be used for officer 
personnel other than the senior officer who would be granted 
the title of Professor. 

The Maginnis amendments, having been circulated, were now 
under study by the Board. Trustee Maginnis then made the following 
statement as a preface to the proposed amendments: 

There is agreement among all parties (Benson Report, University 
Administration, Faculty Senate, etc.) that the ROTC program at 



3365 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the University of Massachusetts must be continued and streng- 
thened where possible. 

Since quality education has always been the academic goal of the 
University, it follows that this must apply in a like degree to 
the ROTC program. Any student who elects to enroll in this pro- 
gram is entitled to, and must have available to him, instruction 
of an excellence comparable to that found in courses in any dis- 
cipline, and a curriculum that results in providing 1 him with the 
opportunity to become a properly educated and qualified officer. 

It is necessary, therefore, that instruction come from the 
source that is best equipped to give it, whether or not it be 
academic or military or a combination of both. 

Debate ensued on the two basic points of disagreement: (1) 
A two- versus a four-year program, and (2) the matter of academic 
credit for ROTC courses taught by military personnel. 

Chairman Troy stated that he also had had "second thoughts" 
on the matter of academic credit and could "see no reason why mili- 
tary and technical courses within the ROTC program should not simply 
follow the normal procedures of other courses at the University and 
come finally before the Academic Matters Committee, there to be 
assessed as to whether or not they should be given academic credit. 

Trustee Maginnis argued that excellence in all aspects of a 
University education was the basic issue. "We must," he said, "give 
the kind of course that will allow these men to compete on an equal 
basis with others from the military academies and other ROTC groups. 
The University of Massachusetts can do no less than to provide this 
kind of preparation." 

Trustee Rowland emphasized the issue of freedom of choice 
on the part of all students to choose any courses in which they 
desire to participate. In choosing participation in the ROTC program 
Trustee Rowland hoped that students would have, if possible, freedom 
of choice of either a two- or a four-year program, depending on indi- 
vidual circumstances. She felt strongly that a student interested in 
the ROTC program should not be penalized by loss of two summers with 
possible resultant loss of income, or a possible loss of the four- 
year scholarships. Several Trustees agreed with the positions 
expressed by Trustees Rowland and Maginnis. 

Chairman Healey commended Associate Provost Allen for the 
"thorough and objective" job he had done in the compilation of the 
voluminous material on ROTC, which had been requested by the Board at 
the May 29 meeting, and which had been mailed in June. 



Chancellor Tippo requested Associate Provost Allen as 
person to whom the Colonels report," to comment.

Mr. Allen said that, after receiving the proposed amend- 
ments, he had asked Professor Philips Jones as Chairman of the Fac- 
ulty Senate Military Affairs Committee for his reaction. Professor 
Jones' memorandum of June 26 was then distributed. This summarized 
the Faculty Senate Subcommittee position as being in disagreement 
with the Maginnis amendments on the two basic issues. 

Chairman Healey particularly noted the last paragraph of 
Professor Jones' memorandum which stated that "if, after having 
recently affirmed the central role of the faculty in the governance 
of the University, the Board of Trustees were to overturn the Faculty 
Senate recommendations on ROTC , it would be understandable if many 
Faculty Senators felt somewhat cynical and skeptical about the 
utility of giving long and conscientious service to the Senate on 
issues which must go to the Board." 

"Implicit in this statement," Chairman Healey said, "is the 
idea that if the Board of Trustees should overturn the Faculty Senate 
motions the faculty would be very unhappy . . . ." Chairman Healey 
noted the considerable amount of time the Board had spent, both in 
Committee and at full Board meetings, as well as the time spent by 
individual Trustees, on the question of ROTC. "I know of no other 
issue," Chairman Healey said, "on which the Board has spent more time 
The Board of Trustees is charged by law with the ultimate decision on 
all matters concerning the University, and does not 'rubber stamp' 
recommendations made by any individual, or group." 

Further discussion ensued on the basic points of disagree- 
ment between the Faculty Senate proposals and the Maginnis amendments 
as proposed. Trustee Pumphret observed that, on the basis of materiafL 
presented by the military representatives and on the background mate- 
rial, the few existing experimental two-year programs were not prov- 
ing successful. 

In regard to a two- vs. a four-year program, Chairman 
Healey asked, "Why is this not a judgment in which the military has 
some special competence which is better than that of the general 
faculty? Why is not the judgment of the military as to how they can 
best select leaders and as to what best fits into their advance pro- 
gram something to which we should pay some attention?" 

In response to a question from Trustee Gordon, Chancellor 
Tippo stated that he also had some reservations about the two points 
now under discussion when the Faculty Senate proposals were first 
made. "I think," the Chancellor said, "that we should allow the 
military departments to present their course outlines to the Academic 
Affairs Committee of the Faculty Senate and let them appraise and 
study the courses. If they think the courses should have academic 
credit, then they should be given that opportunity." 

With respect to the question of a two- vs. a four-year pro- 
gram, the Chancellor said, "I would be guided by the recommendation 
of the military people. If they want a four-year program, they 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

should have it--it would be on their own time. I would personally at 
this point support the Maginnis amendments." He added that the 
Faculty Senate Military Affairs Subcommittee had, in their original 
report, recommended the opportunity for academic credit and that this 
motion had lost in the Faculty Senate by one vote. 

Trustee Croce recommended that the four-year program, if 
approved, have substantial academic improvement in the course content 
of the first two years of the program. There was general concurrence 
that this recommendation be added to the Maginnis amendments. 

Trustee Elters expressed the opinion that "ROTC has no 
place on a college campus. I think it is antithetical to the whole 
concept of education, anti-intellectual, and definitely professional 
at an undergraduate level." He added that he could see an advantage 
in a two-year program in that "the student is not exposed to military 
propaganda at a freshman and sophomore level." 

Professor Korson, Faculty Senate representative to the 
Board, expressed agreement with the position of the Faculty Senate 
proposals and spoke of the difficulties of arriving, within that 
body, at a compromise position on this divisive issue. 

President Lederle emphasized a position he had taken in 
earlier discussions of the ROTC issue: that it is most important 
that there be an infusion into the ranks of military command of 
people with training in the liberal arts. 

In answer to the question as to who would negotiate the 
contracts with the military departments, Chancellor Tippo said that 
he assumed that the negotiating team would consist of the Chancellor, 
Associate Provost Allen (who is directly in charge of the military 
program), Professor Jones as observer, the military representatives, 
and Treasurer Johnson who would be interested in the financial 
details. After preliminary negotiations, the Chancellor said, the 
matter would come back to the Board for consideration and approval 
of final contracts. 

Trustee Maginnis then presented the following motion, which 
is offered in substitution for the original motion, and which is to 
be the basis for all negotiations concerning military contracts: 

On motion made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED: To approve the motion in Sen. Doc. 70-005A, as amended: 

A. That both the Military Science and Air Science cur- 
ricula be revised so as to provide courses in each 
of the following categories: 

1. Courses with substantial "academic area" con- 
tent, offered by the appropriate academic 
departments and taught by the regular faculty. 



3367 



6-29-70 



3368

TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

These courses would carry academic credit and would 
be open to non-ROTC students also keeping in mind 
that the team- teaching concept should be employed 
wherever appropriate. 

2. Courses with diffuse "academic area" (and also tech- 
nical) content spanning several disciplines, and 
also courses concerned primarily with military tac- 
tics and strategy, and/or specialized military sub- 
jects. These courses would be offered by the mem- 
bers of the Division of Military and Air Science 
supplemented by cooperating faculty members of other 
departments of appropriate disciplines. Academic 
credit will be granted on the same basis and cri- 
teria as applied to all courses University-wide. 

3. Courses of indoctrination, and/or drill, and/or 
training in military skills, taught by military per- 
sonnel and carrying no academic credit. 

B. That the curriculum proposed above should be implemented 
within the framework of the present four-year commission 
program with academic improvement made where possible in 
the course content of the first two years of the program 

C. That the Department of Air Science and. Military Science 
remain as distinct units, answering directly to the 
Military Affairs Subcommittee and to the Provost. 

D. That where Air Force or Army manuals for category-2 
courses are used, it shall be the responsibility of the 
Military Affairs Subcommittee to review these, every 
third year, to ensure their suitability. 

E. 1. That the academic rank of Lecturer ordinarily be con 
ferred upon officer personnel appointed to the 
Departments of Military and Air Science, except that 
the rank of Professor shall be conferred on the 
Senior Officer, as required by the ROTC Vitalization 
Act of 1964. 

2. That the federal government reimburse the University 
of Massachusetts for full institutional costs of the 
ROTC program. 

The motion carried with 
three opposing votes. 

Trustee Lambson stated that he would hope for an improve- 
nent in the climate in which this program must operate. Chairman 
lealey noted that this was implicit in the vote taken by the Trustees 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Report of the Executive Committee meeting of June 29 
was given by Chairman Healey. Trust Fund and Operating Fund Budgets 
1970-71 (Document T70-126) had been discussed, as well as the person- 
nel summaries. Portions of these documents had been reviewed by 
Treasurer Johnson, and it was noted that these budgets are based on 
tentative figures for appropriations , with final action on appropria- 
tions yet to be taken by the legislature. 

Staffing of the President's Office had been discussed and 
it had been pointed out that the staff positions had been loaned from 
the three campuses, and that no new positions had been created. A 
supplemental budget for office space in Boston and furnishings, etc., 
has been submitted. 

Noting that the Executive Committee has had only a brief 
time for study of the 1970-71 Operating Budgets and Trust Fund Bud- 
gets, Chairman Healey said that these were being presented to the 
Board without objection by any member of the Executive Committee on 
the basis of their review, but without a formal vote of recommenda- 
tion. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To adopt the 1970-71 operating budgets and the Trust 

Fund Budgets as presented to the meeting including the 
personnel schedules as set forth in Document T70-126, 
which Document now becomes a part of these minutes. 



Fees- 



UM/Worcester had been discussed. Rental of the house 
at 382 Plantation Street, Worcester, was discussed. Due to the 
severe shortage in Worcester of suitable rooms for students, it is 
proposed that this building be used to house four students for this 
academic year, and possibly for another year or two, at a rental 
figure of $400 per student. This is lower than the housing fees 
charged at Amherst, but the accommodations and services are not com- 
parable with the Amherst residence halls. Students will have to pro- 
vide their own janitor service. It is expected that the income of 
$1600 will just about cover operating and maintenance expenses. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That student fees per academic year for the Medical 
School be established as follows: 

Single Married 



Tuition $600 

Equipment Maintenance Fee 

(Trust Fund) 
Health Fee (Trust Fund) 
Optional Insurance — sickness and

Street to house students at the Medical School at a 
rental rate of $200 per semester, provided that the 
students will perform their own janitorial and other 
services other than utilities which will be furnished. 

The School of Education has been awarded a Federal Grant in 
the amount of $130,000 for the purpose of evaluation of grants and 
awards made under Title I of the Education Act. This contract is to 
be signed with HEW on June 30 and it is requested that Mr. Sidney 
Myers, Staff Attorney UM/A, be authorized to sign for and in the 
name of the University. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Sidney Myers, Staff Attorney UM/Amherst, to 
sign for and in the name of the University of Massachu- 
setts a certain contract in the amount of $130,000 with 
the Office of Education, Department of Health, Education 
and Welfare. 

Chairman Healey next discussed the matter of disposal of 
one Morgan horse, Bay State Ivy #011476, which has been declared sur 
plus by the College of Agriculture. Independent appraisals have been; 
made and averaged, as is customary procedure, and it is recommended 
that this nine-year-old mare be sold to Mrs. John W. Lederle for the 
sum of $675.00, the purchase price money to be provided from private 
donations made available for the purchase by the President's Testi- 
monial Gift Committee. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and unanimously 

VOTED : On the basis of two appraisals received, to authorize the 
Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, to sell 
the Morgan horse "Ivy" (Reg. #011476 if any) , said horse 
having been declared surplus by the College of Agricul- 
ture, to Mrs. John W. Lederle for the sum of $675.00, the 
purchase price money to be provided from private dona- 
tions made available for the purchase by the President's 
Testimonial Gift Committee. 

It was also

Whereas , the energetic and creative interest of Mrs. 
John W. Lederle was greatly instrumental, in cooperation 
with the Dean of the College of Agriculture and others, 
in revitalizing the University horse program and

students, 

Now , therefore , The Board of Trustees extends to Mrs. 
John W. Lederle its sincere congratulations for her 
exceptional contribution to the Morgan horse program, 
and its special appreciation for her achievement on 
behalf of the hundreds of students who now take advan- 
tage of this program through regular courses in the Uni- 
versity curriculum, or on an extracurricular basis for 
recreational purposes. 

The Report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
presented by Committee Chairman Haigis. 

The committee recommends that the three residence halls 
designed by John Carl Warnecke and now under construction—Project 
Twelve--be named for three former Trustees: Harry Dunlap Brown, 
William M. Cashin, and Elizabeth L. McNamara, all of whom gave long 
and distinguished service to the University. 

Harry Dunlap Brown served as Trustee, University of Massa- 
chusetts, from January 3, 1940, through January, 1968. He graduated 
from Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1914 and was awarded an 
Honorary Doctor of Law degree from the University of Massachusetts in 
June, 1964. He received the Distinguished Service Award from the 
Alumni Association, University of Massachusetts, in June, 1959, and 
also served as President and Director of the Association. Mr. Brown 
was a former Director and Clerk of the University of Massachusetts 
Building Association, Inc. He also served the Commonwealth as Repre- 
sentative in the General Court from 1929 to 1934. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That a residence hall--Project Twelve—be named in honor 
of former Trustee Harry Dunlap Brown. 

William M. Cashin was appointed Trustee of the University 
of Massachusetts in January, 1949, by Governor Dever and reappointed 
in 1956 by Governor Herter. He also served as a member of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Building Authority, as one of the original 
Trustee members, and later as a public member until the time of his 
death on July 11, 1969 ; . 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That a residence hall--Project Twelve—be named in honor 
of former Trustee William M. Cashin. 

Mrs. Elizabeth L. McNamara served as Trustee, University of 
Massachusetts, from 1937 to 1957. From 1937 to 1947 she served as 
Chairman of the Committee on the Extension Service, the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy, and Committees on Experiment Station 
and Horticulture. From 1948 to 1957 she served on the Committees on 
Legislation and Faculty and Educational Policy. She died on Janu- 
ary 22, 1957, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

On motion made and seconded, it was unamimously 

VOTED : To name a residence hall — Project Twelve--in honor of 
former Trustee Elizabeth L. McNamara. 

It is recommended by the committee that the Married Student 
Project on North Pleasant Street be named North Village. As similar 
projects are planned for the future, it is felt that the names of 
such projects should provide geographical identification. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Married Student Housing Project, UM/Amherst, 
be named North Village. 

It was also 

VOTED : That the Access Road — Married Student Housing, 
UM/Amherst, be named North Village Road. 

The committee also wished to point out, Chairman Haigis 
said, that by action of the Board of Trustees on May 31, 1968, the 
new library now under construction had been named "The University 
Library." 

The status of the East Pleasant Street By-pass Road, which 
is to be built on University property, was reviewed by Mr. Little- 
field. Alternates to the proposed plans will be presented at a pub- 
lic hearing to be held in Amherst at a later date. Mr. Littlefield 
also pointed out the location of the site which the University has 
agreed to provide to the Town of Amherst for construction of an 
auxiliary fire station. He also pointed out the location of the 
corridor road which is to be constructed through the Tillson Farm 
property. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Plans for the East Pleasant Street By-pass 

Road, UM/Amherst, be approved as presented as to their 
location on University property and general concepts. 

It was also 

VOTED : That the plan to reserve a corridor for a road through 
the Tillson Farm Property be approved as presented to 
provide for a future connection from East Pleasant 
Street to North East Street. 

It was also 

VOTED : That a parcel of land be reserved as a site for an 

Amherst fire station at or in the vicinity of the inter- 
section of the new, proposed East Pleasant Street

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

By-pass Road and the existing East Pleasant Street, 
said site to be on the southerly side of the new road 
in the orchard. 

The committee had discussed at length the matter of Rents- 
Married Student Apartments, UM/Amherst, Chairman Haigis said. Rents 
on the apartments now under construction by the University will be 
considerably higher than the rents being charged for Lincoln and Uni 
versity Apartments, which were set under older schedules. It is felt 
that rents, with appropriate differentials reflecting such factors 
as number of bedrooms, size of comparable apartments, age, and con- 
venience to campus, should be equalized to the extent possible in 
the interest of fairness to all students living in university mar- 
ried-student housing. The general range of increases to equalize 
was between $70-$80 before application of the appropriate differen- 
tials (size, age, etc.) with $40 of this increase required to place 
the Lincoln and University Apartments on a self- liquidating basis. 
There was considerable discussion of the pros and cons of equalizing 
or maintaining substantially different self-liquidating rent sched- 
ules for comparable facilities. It was agreed that as much notice 
as possible would be given to the tenants of rent increases and 
Board approval should be delayed until they could vote on a specific 
schedule of rents for married-student housing which should be staged 
in two steps, November 1, 1970, and September 1, 1971. 

Trustee Pumphret reported that the Building Authority had 
reviewed its financing and costs and were confident that average 
rents of $150 for North Village would be self-liquidating for that 
project for the first year of operations. 

Final plans for the Fine Arts Building were reviewed. Tar 
get dates set by the BBC are July 20, 1970, for bid advertising, 
September 1, 1970, for the opening of bids, and October 1, 1970, for 
the start of construction. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Final Plans and Specifications for the 
Fine Arts Building, UM/Amherst, as presented by the 
architectural firm of Roche and Dinkeloo and as 
detailed in Document T70-128. 

Mr. Littlefield has announced a conference for the 
Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) to be held in 
Amherst, August 9 through August 12. This is to be the opening 
event in the new Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center. The Chancellor 
and the Board of Trustees are to host a reception in honor of dis- 
tinguished architects who have had work commissioned on the Amherst 
campus. It is hoped that a goodly number of Trustees will be able 
to attend. 

Chairman Haigis requested Vice-Chancellor Hamilton to 
review items related to the UM/Boston campus. Dr. Hamilton noted

that it is now expected that the ground-breaking for the Columbia 
Point campus will be held during the fourth week in July. 

The inadequacy of the available water supply for Columbia 
Point was discussed by Vice-Chancellor Hamilton. There is a distinct 
possibility that it will be necessary to construct an on-site reser- 
voir at Columbia Point in order to provide the flow of 2,000 gallons 
per minute necessary for the campus. 

Transit problems — Columbia Point were also discussed by 
Vice-Chancellor Hamilton. Efforts to have a study funded have 
failed (estimated cost $25,000). Surface busses seem to be the 
interim solution. Plans were presented for a bus terminal facility 
to be constructed adjacent to the Administration and Supply Buildings 
at an estimated cost of $800,000, this figure to include installation 
of permanent escalators. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the concept of bus terminal facilities on 
the Columbia Point campus as presented. 

The original Master Plan Concept, in regard to the shore- 
line and the dike, were next reviewed by Vice-Chancellor Hamilton. 
Elimination of the dike on the eastern shore of the site had been 
suggested, for both aesthetic and budgetary reasons. Soil engineers 
consulted had considered it feasible to leave the eastern shoreline 
as a natural bluff. 

Trustee Knowles, however, had been concerned over possible 
storm damage to the site if the shoreline were left unprotected and 
it had been the consensus of the committee, Chairman Haigis said, 
that this matter have further study. Trustee Knowles also expressed 
opposition to "half a dike" for aesthetic reasons. Past storm damage 
to Morrissey Boulevard was cited, as well as the increasing amount of 
wash from motor boats in the area with resultant erosion of the shore 
line. 

It was the consensus of the Board, after further discussion 
of this matter, that the original Master Plan Concept of a dike com- 
pletely surrounding the site should be adhered to. Vice-Chancellor 
Hamilton concurred in this recommendation. ■ 

Completed arrangements for leasing 25,500 square feet of 
space at 20 Boylston Street to provide additional classroom space 
were reviewed by Vice-Chancellor Hamilton. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Vice-Chancellor William R. Hamilton to com- 
plete negotiations for rental of space at 20 Boylston 
Street for a period of three years at a rental figure of 
$5.70 per square foot, which is to include complete

renovations and air conditioning, as detailed in Docu- 
ment T70-133. 

Phase V Renovations--100 Arlington Street were presented 
for approval. These renovations will provide space primarily for 
science laboratories and will be necessary for the projected enroll- 
ment of 4,000 students at UM/Boston for 1970-71. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Vice-Chancellor William R. Hamilton to 
enter into contracts for Phase V Renovations-- 
100 Arlington Street, UM/Boston, at a contract figure 
not to exceed the appropriation of $275,000. 

President Lederle next presented the Personnel Actions 
which had been circulated. He recommended their approval. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the Personnel Actions as detailed 
in Document T70-127 and Supplement #1, which documents 
are herewith attached to and made a part of these 
minutes. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve and confirm the Presidential Appointments 

Without Tenure, for the period May 29, 1970, to June 29, 
1970, as detailed in Document T70-127A and Supplements 
#1 and #1A, which documents are herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to or repealed by the Board of 
Trustees with respect to professional personnel under 
provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended 
by Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, salary range, 
and descriptive job specification for each position to 
which a member of the professional staff is hereby 
appointed, promoted, transferred or determined shall be 
as hereafter determined by the Board of Trustees or 
under their authority. 

Chairman Healey noted that "this is the last meeting of the 
Board for John Lederle as President of the University. As President, 
and as a member of the Board of Trustees, you have given us ten years 
of inspiring, faithful and dedicated leadership. All members of the 
Board recognize the significant progress made during the 'Lederle 
years' in the affairs of this University."

On motion made and seconded, it was unanimously 

RESOLVED : That the Board of Trustees expresses its gratitude 

and affection to John W. Lederle upon his retirement 
as President of the University of Massachusetts. The 
existence, in 1970, of a dynamic statewide university 
system following a decade of unparalleled growth is a 
greater testimonial to President Lederle than any 
citation we can prepare. The Board of Trustees feels 
honored that it has been able to work with such a 
distinguished educator and public servant, and wishes 
him Godspeed as he begins a new chapter in his 
career. 

Chairman Healey then presented to President Lederle a per- 
sonally selected silver tray bearing the inscription "With apprecia- 
tion and affection from the Board of Trustees." 

President Lederle, in expressing his appreciation to the 
members of the Board, said, "It has been a great ten years. I've 
enjoyed every minute of it." 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:25 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

In the work of developing a permanent structure for the 
System Office, the President has called upon three senior consul- 
tants and expects to have a report on the results of the consulta- 
tion by the September meeting of the Board. Engaged have been: 
Mr. Franklyn Phillips, formerly Regional Administrator of NASA, 
consultant on Organization and Development; also, Albert Bush- 
Brown, Vice President of the University of Buffalo, retained on 
the development activities of the System Office and on urban matters 
also, Edward Lashman of Denver, Colorado, on a part-time basis on 
the development of generalized activities. The consultants have 
been meeting with the principal officers on all campuses. They will 
work as fast as possible to bring in their recommendations. 

On campus activities, President Wood reported that he and 
Dean Soutter have been working on federal problems for financing 
of the Medical School. Although federal authority for construction 
of the buildings has been available for some time, appropriations 
have not been made for this (or any other) medical school in support 
of the intent of the enabling act. Decisions by Congress in the 
next two weeks will be critical, and the President will remain in 
touch with Washington on this matter henceforth, and will report to 
the Board of Trustees as time goes on. 

At UM/Boston, the' President has worked chiefly with the 
Chancellor to move forward with a sound, constructive relationship 
between the residents of the Columbia Point Public Housing Project 
and the process of University planning for construction of the 
permanent campus. Dr. Wood reminded the Board that a whole series o 
issues will develop as construction proceeds, and no one should be 
misled by a single press report as to the details of conditions at 
Columbia Point or problems arising with respect to the site. At 
UM/Amherst, the President and Chancellor Tippo have conferred on a 
variety of matters, many of which will come up under committee 
reports today, at which time appropriate comment will be made. The 
President has been heartened by the series of exchanges at UM/Amhers 
which has included the problem of identifying people, personalities, 
and their professional roles. This has been more complicated than 
expected, he stated. 

Finally, in the President's Office, Dr. Wood has, as his 
first order of business, been becoming familiar with and developing 
judgments on the various budgets proposed. He is under no illusion 
about the ability on such short notice to make a full-scale recommenji 
ation in detail, particularly on additions as they come forward at 
this time, but this, the President's Office later hopes to do. Such 
recommendations for the three campuses will be presented at the Sep- 
tember meeting of the Board, pinpointing the items which deserve the 
highest priority and making appropriate suggestions. 

Simultaneously, the President has been considering presenta- 
tion to the Trustees of a report on the future development of the 
University system and where, in the years ahead, this might best go. 



3379 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

This is a very complicated process. It will involve representatives 
of every member of the University community, the best of the larger 
community in Massachusetts, and the education community at large. 
At present, it is too early to specify how or where the President's 
recommendations may go; but the Board of Trustees will get a proposal 
as soon as possible on the future evolution of the University as a 
whole. 

Chairman Healey reported for the Executive Committee 
which had met on July 29, 1970. Only one vote was required, that or( 



reorganization of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
called on Chancellor Tippo for comment. 



He 



Chancellor Tippo referred to the minutes and vote of the 
Executive Committee on this matter, with particular reference to the 
five areas it is now proposed report directly to him. On an interim 
basis, his office is operating with persons in an acting capacity in 
these areas pending appointment of full-fledged search committees in 
the fall. The present incumbents are: Associate Provost Glucksterr 
in academic affairs, Dr. Bromery in student affairs, and Treasurer 
Johnson in fiscal affairs. Today's Personnel Actions contain a 
recommendation for the appointment of Associate Dean Joseph Marcus, 
Engineering, to the post of Special Assistant to the Chancellor for 
Public Affairs. A search committee will be required to fill the 
position for Administrative Services. 

President Wood commented that, ordinarily, he and the 
Chancellor would have preferred to have the System Office structure 
spelled out in more specific detail prior to moving ahead with the 
organizational structure of a single campus. However, the need to 
move forward is critical. The President agreed that it was best to 
proceed as the Chancellor had described. The System Office, however 1 , 
will hold open the final delineation of assignments in the public 
affairs and fiscal areas, so that both may be coordinated with the 
upcoming System Office structure. It was indicated that a time limi 
has been established for working these problems out, and that the 
search committees would include members of the student body and the 
faculty. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve in principle the initial proposal for admin- 
istrative reorganization, UM/Amherst, as detailed in 
Document T71-019, and specifically the establishment 
of five administrative officer positions, each of which 
will report directly to the Chancellor. 

Chairman Healey called upon Trustee Troy to present the 
report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 

Committee Chairman Troy turned first to the item on 
Reorganization of the College of Arts and Sciences, UM/Amherst. H e 
said that this matter had received careful study for more than two 
years and had been approved by vote of the Faculty Senate and the

Faculty of the College. Essentially, the plan will decentralize the 
College into three units: a Faculty of Humanities and Fine Arts, a 
Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and a Faculty of Natural 
Sciences and Mathematics. 

Each unit will have its own independent Dean, and each will 
serve as a coordinating Dean among the three faculties for a one- or 
two year term. The College will also sponsor several joint activities. 
For example, it will maintain the following central activities: 

Office of Faculty Personnel 

College Business Office 

College Honors Program 

CASIAC-- (Undergraduate Counselling) 

It is hoped to continue to have the administrative offices 
of the College of Arts and Sciences in South College. Dr. Korson, 
Faculty Senate representative, pointed out that the proposed divisior 
pertains to the faculty and not to the curriculum. President Wood 
observed that he regards this item as a matter to be determined by 
vote on a particular campus through the concept of faculty autonomy. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the proposed Tripartite Organization for the 
College of Arts and Sciences of UM/ Amherst be 
approved for immediate implementation as detailed 
in Document T71-002. 

Chairman Troy turned next to the item on C hanges in 
University Core Requirements, UM/Amherst. He noted that the 
Faculty Senate had taken action on this matter and the plan will 
provide greater freedom of choice to students as well as greater 
depth in one subject. Of particular interest is paragraph "E" which 
reduces the Science and Mathematics requirements from 12 credits to 
9. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the present Core Requirements C, D, and E 
be changed to read as follows: 

C. An introduction to the humanities and fine 
arts by the successful completion of three 
courses chosen from those indentified by the 
letter C in the University catalogue. 

D. An introduction to the social and behavioral 
sciences by the successful completion of three 
courses chosen from those identified by the 
letter D in the University catalogue. 

E. An introduction to mathematics and the natural 
sciences by the successful completion of three 
courses chosen from those identified by the 
letter E in the University catalogue.

Next, Mr. Troy presented C hange in University Rhetor ic 
Requirement, UM/Amherst. After a brief discussion it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the present core requirement B be changed to 
read as detailed in Document T7 1-004: 

B. An introduction to the theory and practice of 
writing and speaking, and to the study of 
communication in our society by the successful 
completion of two courses in Rhetoric, one of 
which must be Rhetoric 100 or Rhetoric 110. 

Considered next was the establishment of an Undergraduate 
Major in Comparative Literature, UM/Amherst. It was pointed out 
that this item could be handled out of current University resources 
and would not require extra budget expense. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the establishment of an Undergraduate Major 
in Comparative Literature in the College of Arts 
and Sciences, UM/Amherst, leading to the B.A. degree 
be approved as detailed in Document T7 1-005. 

The U ndergraduate Program in Computer Systems Engineerin g, 
UM/Amherst, was next presented. Chairman Troy stated that this item 
responds to increasing demands in computer science and electrical 
engineering for trained personnel. It may allow for graduate devel- 
opment at a later time. The program is being funded in the amount 
of $25,000 from National Science Foundation funds, with matching 
state funds. 

President Wood stated that the area of computer science ha^ 
system-wide implications in general terms, and his office will be 
viewing how the process of computer development occurs, focusing par*- 
ticularly on the question of proliferation. However, since the item 
at hand is a curricular one, it is entirely appropriate that this be 
considered a campus matter. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Undergraduate Program leading to a 

Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Systems 
Engineering in the Department of Electrical 
Engineering be approved as detailed in Document 
T71-006. 

Presented next was the item, Recommended Change in Sab - 
batic al Leave Policy, UM/Amherst. Chancellor Tippo stated that there

are approximately twenty tenured Instructors on the DM/Amherst 
campus at the present time. They are good teachers, and it is de- 
sirable to change the present policy limiting sabbatical leave to th^ 
rank of Assistant Professor and above. This matter was approved by 
the Faculty Senate in a resolution dated April 30, 1970, calling for 
Instructor eligibility for sabbatical leave after six years of ser- 
vice. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the present sabbatical leave policy adopted 

February 21, 1966, be amended to read: The oppor- 
tunity shall be available to all full-time faculty 
members who hold the rank of Instructor or above and 
who have given the University six years of full-time 
service, as detailed in Document T70-130. 

Chairman Troy presented next the Pr oposed Ph.D. Program 
in Speech, UM/Amherst . He stated that the graduate program should 
encompass five areas: rhetoric, speech, theater-education, mass 
communications, speech and hearing sciences, and theater. The 
doctoral demand in these areas is very high. While the western and 
midwestern universities have extensive programs, the field is not 
well-developed in the East. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the establishment of a Ph.D. program in Speech 
be approved as detailed in Document T70-131. 

Chairman Troy stated that the broad outlines of the pro- | Medical 
posed Medical School Curriculum. , TT M/tJnt-cpsf-pr-j had been presented to School 
his committee by Dean Soutter, Associate Dean Saunders; also by Drs. Curriculum,

It was stressed that, in an era of rapidly expanding medicc 
information, the individual physician has need of keeping himself in 
formed through a sustained program of self-education. Because of 
this, a significant portion of the curriculum will be planned and im 
plemented by the student himself. Each student will gain this first- 
hand knowledge of problems in his particular field of interest under 
the guidance of a member of the faculty. 

Dean Soutter looks forward to enrolling a full class of IOC 
students by 1974. The details of this item are set forth in Document 
T71-013. 

Chairman Troy further reported that no vote had been taken 
by the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee on Dean Soutter' s 
request for three categories of appointment in the Medical School; 
clinical, research, and professional. This matter will be studied 
further in detail; Dean Soutter will provide supporting memoranda, 
and President Wood will make a review prior to presenting recommenda- 
tions to the Board. 



UM/Worceste

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The next item was Music Major, UM/Boston . 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the establishment of a Music Major , UM/Boston, 
as detailed in Document T7 1-010, be approved. 

Chairman Troy introduced the item o n Junior Year in Pari s 
Budget, UM/Boston . He noted an increase in the responsibilities of 
the director of the program plus the influence on inflationary 
factors. The budget has been reviewed by the Director of Inter- 
national Programs. Chairman Healey inquired concerning the size of 
the budget and it was reported to be $71,360. Chancellor Broderick 
notqd tkat $34,000 of this sum comes from student fees, so the net 
cost to the University is $37,000. Eighteen persons are involved. 
Chairman Troy termed the program "very successful." Chairman 
Healey added that all of our overseas programs were similarly succes 
ful. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Junior Year in Paris Budget, UM/Boston 
as detailed in Document T71-011. 



Chairman Troy reported that the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy had recently entertained two grievance petitions, 
one in Amherst from Mrs. Aino Jarvesoo and one in Boston from Walter 
J. Lehmann. He pointed out that much study and review had been 
given to both cases. Both petitioners had been represented by counsel 
The University was represented by Attorney Austin Broadhurst. Mrs. 
Jarvesoo requested that she be permitted, through a representative, 
to make a statement to the Board. The Chairman observed that he 
would consent, providing there was no Trustee objection; however, 
no interrogation of Board members would be permitted. 

Representing Mrs. Jarvesoo was Richard H. LeFrancois, 
Field Representative of the National Society of Professors, N.E.A., 
who read the text of a letter which she had addressed to Chairman 
Healey (dated June 16, 1970--copy attached). 

Mr. LeFrancois departed from the text to observe that, in 
his opinion, the issue of Mrs. Jarvesoo' s competence had never been 
raised at any stage of the study and review of her case. 

Mrs. Jarvesoo was then invited to make a statement. She 
denied that she had been told she could not be recommended for tenure 
in a meeting with the then-Acting Dean of Home Economics. She 
quoted a paragraph from then-Provost Woodside in which he had in- 
formed her that it had become a "general rule" in universities that 
only one member of a family should be granted tenure, and that he 
had expressed agreement with this policy. Also, Mrs. Jarvesoo said, 
Dean Woodside told her that "what he had heard of her performance 
up to this time led him to believe she would not need to be afraid 
of arbitrary dismissal." She stated that these same views were con-

firmed in later letters by then-Acting Dean of Home Economics 
Merriam. She added that--subsequently--she had been given four 
successive annual appointments. 

After brief further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the position of the University administration, 
UM/Amherst, be sustained in the matter of the 
grievance petition of Mrs. Aino Jarvesoo. 

Trustee Knowles is recorded as abstaining. 

The Committee and the Board ofTrustees having reviewed 
the case and the opinion submitted by University Counsel Broadhurst 
with respect to the grievance petition of Walter J. Lehmann, UM/ 
Boston, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the position of the University administration, 
UM/Boston, Be sustained in the matter of the 
grievance petition of Walter J. Lehmann. 

Trustees Gordon and Knowles are recorded as abstaining. 

Presented next was the nomination of Dr. Robert G. Hoopes 
of the UM/Boston faculty, and former Chairman of the English 
Department at Michigan State University, as the new Dean of Faculty, 
UM/Boston, effective September 1, 1970. He was described as an 
excellent scholar and an experienced administrator. 

Chancellor Broderick commented that Dean Hoopes' appoint- 
ment is for a transitional period until the appointment of a Provost 
at UM/Boston. President Wood indicated that he had been consulted 
in this matter and is in agreement with the recommendation. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Robert C. Hoopes 
as Dean of Faculty, UM/Boston, effective 
September 1, 1970. 

Chairman Troy next introduced the final item of the Faculty 
and Educational Policy Committee agenda, C hange in Calendar, 1970-71 
Princeton Plan), UM/Amherst . 



Chairman Troy said that his committee had taken no vote in 
this matter because it wanted the entire Board of Trustees to have ah 
opportunity to read all of the relevant material. He called on 
Chancellor Tippo for comment. The Chancellor stated that the proble^i 
had its genesis in mid-May. Two meetings of the Faculty Senate have 
been held to discuss the problem. It had also been discussed in a 
Senate Academic Matters Committee and the Senate Committee on Space 
and Calendars. As a result, the Faculty Senate, late in the academiij; 
year, approved an Autumnal Recess (modified Princeton Plan) of eight 
prior to November 3, 1970. This was followed by a general faculty 
meeting of May 29 attended by a large number of persons. This group 
also approved of the plan, but the meeting was hastily called

and some faculty members later complained that they did not receive 
sufficient notice. The details of the Faculty Senate position are 
set forth in Document T71-012. 

Chancellor Tippo next summarized the pros and cons of the 
Faculty Senate proposal. In favor of the proposal, he said, were 
the following: 

1. It will commit the students to working for candidates 
of their choice "within the system." 

2. Since many students will cut classes anyhow, the Univer- 
sity might just as well shut down. 

3. This is a fine educational experience for the student. 

4. The plan was adopted by the Senate and approved by the 
faculty, and traditionally matters of the academic calendar are 
the province of the faculty. 

There is a question, however, whether the faculty would 
have voted for the proposal if they had all the facts which are 
now available at their disposal, Chancellor Tippo said. 

He listed the following points against the proposal: 

1. As adopted at Princeton University, the plan means that 
students would be away for two weeks; but this time would be made 
up by starting the semester one week early and by cutting down the 
Christmas, and Thanksgiving vacations. There is an actual exchange 
of vacation for curricular time. 



The UM/ Amherst proposal, however, uses four reading period days 
two examination days, and three half -Saturdays . This fails to follow 
the American Council on Education guidelines which recommend that 
no use of curricular time be involved for an autumnal political re- 
cess. 

The Chancellor felt that there would be criticism of paying 
the faculty during a recess which shortened the effective length of 
the academic year; on the other hand, faculties do other work during 
the year and perhaps the time lost would be compensated for in other 
ways. 



2. Demands will come from nonacademic personnel on the cam- 
pus that they also be granted time off with pay to engage in political 
activity. 

3. It was also questioned how many students would take ad- 
vantage of the opportunity. No general student poll was taken 
because the suggestion came so late in the academic year. Except 
for its Executive Committee, the Student Senate has held no meeting 
on this question. Nationally, a widely publicized Harris Poll on 
this subject showed that students favored an autumnal recess by two 
to one .

4. The students might not leave the campus, but remain 
and use it as a political base. The University could shut down com- 
pletely, of course, but this would lead to objections from the 
graduate students and many undergraduates. 

Threats have been made that funds may be cut if the univer 
sities around the nation eliminate teaching days. Senator Byrd has 
stated that the Senate hap instructed HEW to cut federal appropria- 
tions for allotments in the case of any university which has elimate 
teaching days. Further, the Chancellor is certain that complaints 
will be recieved from parents and members of the legislature. There 
is a danger of retaliation in various forms. 



Only one state university—Rutgers-- has adopted the Prince- 
ton Plan. It has been rejected by the University of California sys- 
tem, by the New York system, by Illinois, and many others. It has 
been adopted by only a few private universities. 

In view of the above, Chancellor Tippo stated, the only 
sensible thing appears to be a compromise plan, similar to that 
adopted by the Harvard faculty. This would call for voluntary par- 
ticipation. The student would arrange with his professor to make 
up work, and the University would encourage the professors not to 
give examinations or call for papers during the proposed recess 
period. Furthermore, each professor would be asked to state his plaijis 
at the first meeting of the class in the fall. 

President Wood commented that he had discussed this matter 
extensively with Chancellor Tippo and that both agreed that effective 
political action and the development of political consciousness are 
a matter of individual choice and are desirable. He called the com- 
promise proposal "as effective as the so-called Princeton Plan in 
accomplishing the above-stated principle." 

One alternative, the President noted, is for students to 
engage in extracurricular and course work related to political 
issues of the times. This might include field exercises and par- 
ticipationthat would made student involvement even more effective 
than the plan outlined by the Chancellor. Also, such involvement 
might stretch through an entire semester or an entire academic year. 

Chairman Healey commented that--in his opinion- -few, if any 
elections are ever won or lost in the month of November. Trustee 
Lyons queried why it was not feasible to make up work at Christmas 
or at the end of the academic year; also, whether students might 
not present papers setting forth what they had learned in their off- 
campus political experience. The Chancellor responded that this 
might be possible in Social Science courses but not in such courses 
as Organic Chemistry. 

Trustee Lambson stated that the Dean of Agriculture re- 
ported that only 10 percent of the College of Agriculture was in 
favor of an autumnal recess.

Trustee Abrams stressed the importance of making the 
recess a meaningful experience for the students. In talking with 
Dr. Gordon, Chairman of the Department of Government, he suggested 
that leadership might become involved in a meaningful way, in 
cooperation with the Department of Government. Dr. Gordon had re- 
plied that it is pretty late in the year to develop such possibilities. 

Trustee Pumphret noted that approximately 137 seats of tho 
state legislature will go incontested, and the results of the con- 
gressional fight may well be settled by September. 

Bishop Weldon stated that we should be educating our 
students for a life beyond the campus and--realistically--in life, 
business, industrial and banking firms do not simply shut down for 
electioneering and political purposes. He felt that students shoulc. 
be encouraged to participate in political activity, but that other 
adults must do this on their own freetime and students should par- 
ticipate in the same way. 

Trustee Elters observed that the Board of Trustees looks 
at the problem differently than he would. He called "unfounded" 
the threat that the University cannot devise its own vacation 
schedule. Hundreds of universities in the nation operate on different 
vacation schedules, he said. In specific response to Chancellor 
Tippo's comments, Trustee Elters observed: 

1. The fact that faculty may be paid for a vacation period 
is a moot point. (Many faculty make a nine-month occupa- 
tion out of being paid and not teaching.") 

2. Re the Harris Poll: 39 percent of the students plan to 
work for antiwar candidates. The October recess is 
favored by 57 percent of students; opposed by only 32 
percent. 

3. Two women students on the Student Senate Executive 
Committee whose ideologies are relatively conservative 
still favored the recess plan. 

4. Query: Does the proposal actually decrease the number of 
teaching days and would HEW actually cut the funds? 

The Chancellor responded that the Faculty Senate proposal 
would eliminate a number of Saturdays and four reading days. Trustee 
Elters continued that approaching professors on this matter invites 
political repression because the student may become subject to the 
professor's individual political views. He added that many students 
are interested in home-town politics; also, that many would wish to 
get into anti-political action; also, that there was a high degree 
of student interest in the race for the governorship, the senatorial 
race, and "referendum 70" on the Vietnam War. 

Lastly, Mr. Elters said that he wished to discredit the 
idea that a university should mirror society. "it is clear to many 
students," he said, "that society is not perfect, and it is not good 



3388 

8-10-70 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

to construct a university around society. " He asked the Trustees 
to consider attachments to the statement he had issued at the be- 
ginning of the meeting (Document T71-010), especially the item, 
"IRS--A Hollow Threat." He said he hoped the Trustees would agree 
that the proposal would not cause the University to engage in 
political action. 

Chancellor Tippo responded with additional statistics from 
the aforementioned Harris Poll: 

70 percent of students believe that school officials 
should call in the police if demonstrators occupy a 
building or threaten violence. 

Only 25 percent of students oppose ROTC. 

72 percent of students believe defense industries 
should be allowed to recruit on campus. 

61 percent of students believe there should be no 
objection to the individual professor doing defense 
research on the campus. 

Trustee Elters responded that he believes the Harris Poll 
reflects the UM/ Amherst campus fairly well. However, he disputed 
the item that 70 percent of students believe in calling in the polic^ 
to handle campus disturbances. 

Trustee Abrams asked whether Professor Korson might commen|; 
on whether or not he felt the Faculty Senate would vote the same way 
at this time on the autumnal recess proposal. Dr. Korson said that 
the Faculty Senate vote was taken at a time when the atmosphere was 
clouded by the student strike. At the general faculty meeting, only 
200 out of a faculty of 1,000 turned out, and the vote in favor of 
the proposal was two to one. Beyond this, he felt the faculty's 
principal concern was to "get the students off the campus to do 
'their own thing' " so that a little peace and quiet could prevail. 
He stressed that the last week in October may not be an effective 
time to do academic work, and was not opposed to students "doing 
their own thing" in their home communities. Speaking only for him- 
self—if a poll were taken today—based on the pros and cons as 
outlined by Chancellor Tippo, Dr. Korson said he felt the Faculty 
Senate might now vote against the plan it had approved in May. 

Trustee Gordon queried whether the suggested compromise 
presented by Chancellor Tippo (based essentially on freedom of choice 
if brought to the Faculty Senate, might now pass. Professor Korson 
said he thought that the Faculty Senate would approve , but added he 
could not be certain. However, he stressed the importance of having 
a decision well before the opening of the semester, and that every 
Professor announce"the rules of the game" for his particular course 
on the opening day of class. If a professor has made up his outline 



3389 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

and has an examination scheduled for the recess period, then "this 
is his show"; it comes under the heading of academic freedom and 
students will have to work around that. 

Chairman Healey queried whether the Board of Trustees 
should encourage every faculty member to "lean over backward" to 
accommodate students in this matter. Mr. Korson said "he believed 
so." Mr. Healey said the Board should formulate a policy on the 
recess, and Mr. Korson s a \a it would receive a fair consideration 
on the part of all faculty members. 

Trustee Lyons asked whether the issue of academic 
freedom was so great that the recess could not be established as 
an administrative matter. 

President Wood suggested that, if you combine a Board 
of Trustees policy statement with encouragement of formal instruct- 
ional activity, you meet both the point of individual faculty mem- 
bers (of whatever persuasion they may be), and you also meet Trustee 
Elters ' good point that students may engage in some continuing 
process of education through the summer and beyond. He felt certain 
that there were more effective ways to carry out the intent of the 
Princeton Plan, which he said was "conceived in haste." 

Trustee Elters said he thought the question of academic 
freedom was greatly involved—not as the Trustees thought—but "in 
the apparent bowing," not only of this Board of Trustees but boards 
all across the country to "threats." Most students, he said, feel 
that the ACE guidelines represent raw, partisan political threats 
against universities. Trustees at CCNY (200,000) students "saw 
through" this and adopted the Princeton Plan, he said. "And they 
are not about to lose their tax-exempt status." Chairman Healey 
responded that no one is putting that kind of pressure on him; he 
would not accept it. 

Trustee Troy concurred. His concern, he said, was 
with the vagueness of the proposal: students engaging in politics — 
when? doing what? how many? He saw no evidence that vast numbers 
of students had a strong desire, or the capacity through experience 
actively or effectively to participate in the political problems of 
the coming election. He felt the Trustees were being asked simply 
to vote a vacation in the midst of an important semester. 

Trustee Gordon pointed out that many Trustees, when 
students, had worked for political candidates, but "on our own time 
there was also freedom of choice. Students who wished to participat 
did so; others did not. 

Trustee Lambson said, with regard to use of the word 
"threats" that it was a case of "the pot calling the kettle black." 
Reference by student representatives has been made in subcommittee 
meetings, he said, that if the Trustees do not vote (this or that) 
privilege, then this may arouse the students and create "bad re- 
actions." "I call these threats, too, "he said.

Discussion on both sides of this question continued. Chan- 
cellor Tippo requested the Trustees to encourage the administration 
to develop a positive plan whereby participation in the autumnal 
recess would be voluntary, with the administration urging faculty 
members not to give exams or call for term papers during that period 
also that they announce a firmpolicy in this matter in this matter 
on the first day of classes. 

Trustee Shaler queried whether the vote, when taken, would 
apply only to the Amherst campus. Chancellor Broderick responded 
that the Senate at UM/Boston specifically rejected the Princeton 
Plan, but passed a motion stating that it was the sense of the Senate 
that faculty should be urged not to hold exams or have papers due in 
the ten days preceding the election. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To encourage the administration to develop plans so 

that students may participate in political activity on 
a voluntary basis for the eight-day period before 
November 3, 1970, provided that they make appropriate 
arrangements with their professors for makeup work; 
also, to request the administration, UM/Amherst, to 
encourage faculty to withhold examinations and postpone 
the due date of term papers for the duration of said 
recess. Further, faculty members are asked to announce 
their plans at their first meeting of the class in the 
fall. 

Chairman Healey invited Trustee Gordon to present the 
report of the Committee on Government and University Relations. 

Mr. Gordon reported that his committee had been hard at 
work since the SWAP Conference last November to redefine the outreach 
role of the University in terms of "relevance." A subcommittee was 
appointed consisting of Messrs. Gugin, Howards, Goodwin, and Vice 
Chancellor Hamilton. This group focused on the threefold approach 
of a Land-Grant University in teaching, research, and service. It 
has finally crystallized its work of one year in the current pro- 
posal circulated to the Board of Trustees for the establishment of 
an Institute for Governmental Service. There is need to recognize 
that the Commonwealth is in transition from a rural to an urban 
society and the 351 cities and towns in the state need a problem- 
solving agency at their disposal. Town officials, mayors, and 
others are overworked and underpaid. Some assistance, Mr. Gordon 
said, is obtained from the private sector, but such services are 
overpriced. 

The Institute for Governmental Service would operate under 
the umbrella of the System Office as a problem-solving agency with 
a secretariat. Rapport will first be sought with cities and towns 
and later with the state government to offer the resources of the 
Institute for help. It is not planned, in the budgetary sense, as 
an expanding operation, and would not negate the activities now goinj 
on through, for example, the Bureau of Government Research, but 



3391 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

rather would seek to avoid duplication. The explicit role is not 
yet fully defined; a schedule of charges and fees has not yet been 
worked out. This will be done as the Institute becomes established 
hopefully with sufficient flexibility to accommodate the needs as 
envisioned. 

Chairman Gordon requested the Trustees to accept the pro- 
posal in principle, approve the requested budget, and then permit 
the committee to further define specifics as the project moves for- 
ward. 

Mr. Gordon indicated that the project began before Presi- 
dent Wood assumed office. However, the President has met with the 
committee several times during the spring and early summer and has 
offered valuable advice. 

President Wood said this was the new kind of institute anc 
would not reflect the patterns of the past; it reflects the same 
adventurous spirit undertaken earlier by the first Agricultural 
Extension Services with great success. He endorses the work of the 
committee. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the proposal for establishment of an Institute 
for Governmental Service, as detailed in Document 
T7 1-020, be approved in principle and that the 
budget request for said Institute as detailed on pages 
7 and 8 of said document be incorporated into the 
University's operating budget request for 1972 as a 
special appropriations request. 

Chairman Healey invited Trustee Pumphret to present the 
report of the Finance Committee. 

Mr. Pumphret said that his committee had met on July 27 
and reviewed the annual audit report circulated to the Trustees by 
the State Auditor. This was quite satisfactory, and appropriate 
action has been taken to comply with the few recommendations made 
in the report. 

The proposed North Village Married Student Housing Pro- 
ject Rent Schedule had been presented by Mr. Littlefield whose 
figures were based on various estimates of building and operating 
costs. 

The initial proposal called for a schedule as follows: 

Single-room apartment -- $140.00 
Two-bedroom apartment -- $160.00 

Further study showed that a reduction of $4.50 was 
possible based on deletion of an estimated item of $13.00 for 
annual utility costs in laundry operations. This service would not be

ready for some time, and it may even be absorbed in the actual cost 
of operations. 

Chairman Healey recognized Mr. David Yelton of the 
Married Student Housing Committee who presented an alternate rent 
proposal approved by the Graduate Student Senate based on a study 
of Lincoln and University Apartment operations. Mr. Yelton' s re- 
commendations would reduce rents by an additional $5.00 per unit. 
Chairman Pumphret said it was his committee's recommendation, in the 
absence of specific building costs and experience with actual opera- 
tion expenses, that any action on this matter be deferred until the 
project was actually in operation. He agreed that the rent schedule 
should be reviewed with the Married Student Housing Committee after 
three months of operations, at which time actual operating costs 
should be known. 

Chairman Healey commented that his only concern was to be 
certain that the three-month experience option was simply another 
factor to be considered in setting the overall rent scale, rather than 
an automatic "trigger" of the rental scale either up or down. He 
noted that three months is an extremely inconclusive period. Comment 
from Mr. Yelton followed from the floor. His committee had circula- 
ted to the Trustees an alternate rent proposal which provided an 
average rental figure of $135.00. The principal factors differing 
from the Finance Committee recommendation, he said, relate to main- 
tenance charges and accruals. He alleged inefficiency and overcharg- 
ing in operating costs at both Lincoln and University Apartments. 

Pointing out that the original estimate for maintenance 
was $32,000, Mr. Yelton said that the Married Student Housing 
proposal comes to slightly more than one-half that amount. Under 
accruals, the refurbishing costs item provides funds to clean up 
the apartments after the vacating of a tenant, and the Physical 
Plant Department, he said, states that such costs are included in 
their estimation of maintenance charges for the building. 

Mr. Yelton proposed that the debt service on the Univer- 
sity Apartments, when paid off in 1973, be used as an accrual fund 
for all University funds on campus. The bond service from this is 
$27,500 per year, he said, and this should generate sufficient 
revenue to replace appliances at Lincoln and University Apartments 
as well as at North Village. He added that the vacancy allowance 
in his proposal is approximately one-half that of the Finance Comm- 
ittee. It is based on a one-third tenancy turnover per year, with 
one week allowed to clean up apartments between tenants. Based on 
the student estimate, a total cost of $389,000 would be generated 
from rental of all apartments at the $135-per-month figure. Broken 
down, his proposal called for the following schedule: 

Single-bedroom apartment -- $125.00 
Double -bedroom apartment -- $145.00 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Pumphret replied the student committee proposal reduces 
funds reserved for maintenance by 45 percent, creating no reserve 
for maintenance over the life of the building. He felt that the 
Finance Committee proposal had been developed on a "very tight 
schedule." This is entirely a nonprofit venture" he said, "and it 
seems out of order to have it challenged before any experience with 
the project is on hand." He told the Trustees it would be ill- 
advised to accept the Graduate Student proposal until all of the 
cost figures are known. At present, no such information is 
available. 

"We are acting in good faith to give you the best possible 
housing at the lowest possible cost," Mr. Pumphret said. He asked 
that the students bear with the Trustees at the proposed rate so 
as to get the project moving. 

Attorney Broadhurst commented as bond counsel to the 
University Building Authority. It looks, he said, as though the 
financed cost of the North Village Project will be approximately 
$4,000,000. He expressed strong doubt that $4,000,000 can be 
financed under current or probable conditions in the #u^-i,cipal 
bond market for anything like an annual debtservice cost of $300, 00C 
including interest, amortization of principal, plus the required 
reserve. This figure may be low by as much as $30,000. "So, any 
set of figures based on $300,000 debt service which then cuts other 
items to the bone will be woefully inadequate," he said. In fact, 
any estimate under 8 percent for yearly amortization costs is badly 
underestimating the condition of the present bond market. His con- 
clusion was that a figure of $330,000 was the minimum estimate. 

Chairman Healey recognized the President of the Graduate 
Student Senate, Mr. Daniel Collins. 

Mr. Collins pointed out that the average stipend for 
graduate students was approximately $3,000. In addition, many 
graduate student wives work; parents lend financial assistance, etc 
but, basically, the graduate students are a low-income group. 

On the basis of the rent scale proposed by the Finance 
Committee, Mr. Collins said, the following situation prevails: 

Monthly Rental Charge as Percentage of Monthly 
Graduate Student Income

$155.00 -•

Mr. Collins queried "why the Trustees considered building 
such expensive facilities for what is essentially a low-income group

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

He added that a recent survey by the Graduate Student 
Senate (based on 1966-67 figures) had analyzed similar rent struc- 
tures of 23 state universities in a comparable position. That is, 
institutions with a large graduate school of 1,000 persons or more, 
of whom at least 800 were full-time; location in a city or town 
of less than 50,000 persons exclusive of the student population 
center—in other words, similar to the town of Amherst. On this 
scale, he said, UM/Amherst would place 21st out of the 23 universi- 
ties investigated. 

He pointed out that, in costing out its married student 
housing project, the University pays no taxes, has no outlay for 
land, provides for no profit factor, and is eligible for a lower 
interest rate than is available in the private commercial sector. 

Trustee Pumphret responded that the University Building 
Authority acts only on written request from the President, and pro- 
ceeds only within that framework. In the present case, the Authority 
was told that, if assistance is granted to a student, the rental 
allowance is $150.00. Debate followed, and Mr. Collins denied know- 
ledge of the existence of any such rental allowance. 

Chairman Healey observed that the problem is that the Com- 
monwealth has placed its major support in the area of academic 
buildings, scholarships, etc. Housing remains on a self-sustaining 
basis. He suggested that Mr. Collins, therefore address his com- 
plaint to the General Court. Also, he reminded the group that the 
Board of Trustees has repeatedly gone on record for better housing, 
for scholarships, and for maintaining a level of low tuition. Within 
this framework, he noted that the General Court had just provided 
$156,000,000 capital outlay to implement construction at UM/Boston. 

The general position taken by Mr. Collins was seconded by 
an unidentified spokesman representing the graduate student group 
who addressed the Trustees from the floor. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That a rent schedule for North Village Married 
Student Housing be established as follows: 

$135 per month -- single-bedroom apartment 
$155 per month -- two-bedroom apartment 



It was also 



VOTED: 



That the estimated costs used to set these rental rates 
be compared with actual operating costs (with the Married 
Student Housing Committee participating in the review) 
after three months occupancy of the 240 apartments for 
purposes of recommending new rental schedules based on 
actual cost experience and appropriate renovation accruals. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Committee Chairman Pumphret next turned to the item, 
Changes in the Graduate Student and Foreign Student Loan Funds , 
UM/ Amhers t. He noted that the loan fund had been approved by the 
Board on April 13,1964. Now, the Graduate Senate has approved an 
appropriation of an additional $1,000 to be added to this fund pro- 
viding the University matches the donations. Chancellor Tippo has 
indicated that the matching fund level should be renegotiated each 
year and would be Subject to the availability of funds. Details on 
this item are set forth in D ocument T71-016 , and condition (3) of 
the document is to be deleted. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Graduate Foreign Student Loan Fund be 
changed to provide that loans are to be limited 
to $300 with repayment due three months from the 
date of the promissory note. An extension of one 
month may be granted under certain circumstances 
at the recommendation of the Graduate Dean or the 
Foreign Student Advisor. In no case, however, may 
a loan be made less than thirty days prior to the 
known termination of studies.

Next, Mr. Pumphret presented the item, Establishmen t 
of Rates for Self -Supporting Trust Fund Operations. 



Rates - Self-

Trust Funds, 
Occasionally, the administration is asked to establish UM/Amherst 
trust funds that involve the creation of a rate for self-supporting

such authority (Document T71-017). 



VOTED :

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

That the Treasurer of the University, with approval 
of the appropriate Chancellor, be authorized to 
establish rates for the sale of items produced 
by unsponsored research activities whereby the income 
will be returned to the trust fund operation. 

Considered next was the item, St udent Activities Tax, 



Mr. Pumphret reported that this item grows out of 
Chancellor Tippo ' s memorandum of July 20 to President Wood. This 
raised the question of the legality of the tax-exempt status of 
off-campus activities and of the authority of the Trustees to act 
in these matters. 

Trustee Elters said that the tax was clearly within 
the limits set by Chapter 75 of the Statutes; also, that the Board 
of Trustees should not by pass the Student Senate recommendation as 
this budget act was submitted by the representative student govern- 
ment.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Mr. Pumphret drew attention of the Board to the May 29,1968, 
memorandum from Mr. Broadhurst on the doubtful legality of aspects 
of imposing a student tax. Trustee Frechette has asked the Univer- 
sity to seek an opinion from the Attorney General in this matter, 
with particular regard to contributions from the student tax funds 
to off -campus social action programs. Chancellor Tippo pointed to 
the necessity for processing billings now, and these had been issued 
at the full amount recommended by the Student Senate--$3.50 per 
semester ($2.00 of which is being held in escrow). Additionally, a 
freeze on expenditures has been placed on: (a) social action pro- 
grams (especially those off campus); (b) gifts and donations to off- 
campus persons or groups; and (c) political activities which might 
be questionable because of Internal Revenue Service regulations. The 
Chancellor also called for astudent referendum to be held in the fall 
on the entire question of the $7.00 tax increase proposed by the 
Student Senate. 

Trustee Elters had asked that the opinion from the Attorney 
General sought by Trustee Frechette be rendered by August 1. Trustee 
Pumphret, having checked into the procedure, reported that the compli 
cated procedure on this involved routing requests through the Board 
of Higher Education, etc., obviating the possibility of obtaining 
such an opinion at an early date. He reported the consensus of the 
Finance Committee that the recommendations of Chancellor Tippo be 
considered by the Board of Trustees as a basis for action. 

Trustee Gordon offered a motion that would require funds 
collected by the Trustees for student activities to be expended for 
the support of activities "on or closely related to the campus, for 
which the charge is made." Under this motion no funds would be ap- 
plied to donations of any kind to individuals, groups, or organiza- 
tions for activities off campus or for the support of the candidacy 
of any person seeking public office. 



President Wood said he had reviewed the deliberations of 
the Finance Committee, and has had discussions with Chancellor Tippo 
Dn the subject of the memo of August 4. He feels there is sufficient 
administrative discretion in the Chancellor's position, as reflected 
Ln the motion made by Trustee Gordon, to permit sustained interest in 
aff-campus activity by the student body without involving student tax 
Eunds. There is also sufficient administrative flexibility within this 
jroposal to permit an orderly preparation of the budget. He said he 
approves of the Gordon motion. The President distinguished between 
student activity off campus which clearly has an educational benefit- 
jhich arises from a base of some organized campus activity, for examp 
and c ompletely off-campus based activities which clearly lead to 
difficulty in justifying the application of tax funds. The latter 
activities, the President said, should be financed off the tax. 

Chancellor Tippo observed that the Gordon motion could be 
■administered in terms of hisAugust 4 memo. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Elters said that Section 1 of the Tippo memo 
was clearly agreeable, in that it approved of the tax being set at 
$36.50. Section 2, however, raises "several curious questions" in 
that no objection was raised when donation by the Senate was made 
to the Campus Chest; or in 1968 when the Senate voted $5,000 for 
advertising purposes when then-Provost Tippo resigned in protest 
over budget cuts; or in 1969 when $1,500 was voted for the Wes Honey 
Fund, or before the Student Strike when the Senate made donations 
to the Springfield Street Academies. "Suddenly," he said, "during 
and after the Student Strike, objections arise." 

Mr. Elters raised objections to Part Two of the 
Chancellor's memo, particularly paragraphs B and C on off -campus 
social action programs. "Restrictions here are not compatible with 
the dominant student feeling on campus, and such policies, "he said, 
"should be made with student involvement, and not unilaterally by 
means of memorandum. " Mr. Elters continued that the date of April 
1 for submitting the Student Senate budget if "impossible." The 
budget cannot be provided until the third Wednesday in April. 

The Chancellor's insistence on a student referendum 
is uncalled for, Mr. Elters added. The students have a representa- 
tive government and it is generally agreed that if the tax is to go 
above $4.0,00 it would go to referendum. But this matter lies be- 
tween the students and their student government, and "the Chancellor 
is not involved." 

Chancellor Tippo responded that, as long as the admin- 
istration is required to collect the tax, it should have something 
to say about it. 

Mr. Elters responded that he recognized the need to 
explore other sources for funding of the student government, and will 
explore means of getting support from alternate sources. However, 
the administration and Board of Trustees should recognize, he said, 
that this will involve use of private bank accounts. Also, researched 
will be the process of incorporating the student government. He 
added that there is some agreement between his position and that of 
the Chancellor. Specifically, Mr. Elters endorses the actions 
recommended by the Chancellor if Sections 2a and 2b are deleted for 
the present. This is a "gray area" which will require the students 
and administration to sit down and work things out. 

Trustee Elters objected strenuously to the concept of 
"government by memo" which he said had not been done in the past anc 
"now is not a good time for it to happen." He also objected to 
motions coming before the Board affecting the student body which he 
has not had a chance to review. On these grounds, he objected to 
taking action today on the motion by Trustee Gordon. 

Chancellor Tippo reminded the Trustees that the list 
of prior donations from the Student Senate recited by Mr. Elters 
involved cases of o n-campus donations, and that his own objection 
was to donations to o ff-campu s individuals and organizations. He 



3397

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

added that he had no prior knowledge of the Senate's donation of 
$5,000 on behalf of issues raised by his resignation, or he would 
have stopped it. Finally, he observed that the issues raised in 
paragraphs 2a and 2b had been discussed many times over the past two 
years, and that the minutes will show this. 

Chairman Healey took the position that the Board must 
develop guidelines on how the tax will be collected since it is as 
much a part of the required fee paid by parents as is the tuition 
item. He added that the Board need not become involved in day-to- 
day operations in this area, and advised leaving such matters as the 
proposed referendum and the date on which the Student Senate budget 
is due for subsequent discussion. 

Trustee Abrams ' view was that the proposed motion was too 
vague; hence, unnecessary. He felt that the Board of Trustees was 
usurping representative student government by attempting to impose 
their will in this case. 

Trustee Elters added that the Student Senate has a Finan- 
cial Policies Act approved by the Board of Trustees, whereby--if 
problems come up--the Senate is to be approached and students would 
deal with the issue and return their views to the Board of Trustees, 
"if this works in reverse, it creates problems for all concerned," 
he concluded. 

Chairman Healey stated that the problem is one of inter- 
pretation, and requires that the administration and students work 
cooperatively to apply a general policy in specific cases. The 
Board cannot go further than this. 

President Wood emphasized that the student tax is a 
Trustee action at this point, whereas the establishment of priorities 
is a matter to be worked out between students and administration. 
He was confident that Board action and involvement would stay at a 
fairly generalized level. 

Dr. Bromery, Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Stu- 
dent Affairs, said he hoped the Board would adopt the Chancellor's 
recommendation, and then review other aspects of the problem, 
including a request to the Attorney General for a ruling at a later 
date. He felt that the Gordon motion departed from the sense of the 
Chancellor's memo, and was "much more restrictive." 

Chairman Healey asked the Chancellor to highlight the main 
points of his August 4 memo. These follow: 

1. Increase of the Student Tax by $7.00 to a total of $36.50 
($3.50/semester with $2.00 held in escrow). 

2. No expenditures authorized for three areas: 

(a) Gifts and donations to off -campus individuals, groups, 
or organizations. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

(b) No expenditures authorized for political activities 
which might come under question because of Internal 
Revenue regulations, or state or federal laws. 

(c) No expenditures authorized for off-campus social action 
programs other than direct expenditures for student 
transportation and on-campus assemblies and workshops. 

(d) No funds allocated to area governments and commuters 
since budgets have not been received from this source; 
except that 20 percent of the funds be made available 
within the restrictions stated above. 

Chairman Healey noted one problem with the Chancellor's 
proposal in that it prohibits expenditures for political purposes 
under threat of Internal Revenue Service intervention. "There is 
question," Mr. Healey said, "whether the IRS has a right to question 
a state university under any circumstances" (in these matters). 

Trustee Lambson expressed his support of the Gordon motion 
on the grounds that the words "closely related" provide flexibility 
for interpretation of off-campus activities which may be inappropri- 
ate. 

Trustee Elters raised the question of who decides which 
activities are closely related to the campus and which are not. 
Chairman Healey responded that only experience can answer this ques- 
tion; it will call for students and administration to sit down 
together and work out an agreement on the kinds of expenditures of 
funds which are related to the educational process on campus. Dr. 
Bromery again expressed concern that worthwhile off-campus enter- 
prises be protected, such as tutoring services for the Belchertown 
program. 

Chancellor Tippo stated that the Gordon motion was not in 
conflict with his memo of August 4, and if passed, the administra- 
tion would follow the guidelines he set forth in his memorandum. It 
was further agreed to leave out of consideration at this time any 
appeal to the Attorney General for a ruling. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That it is hereby declared to be the policy of the 
Board of Trustees that funds for student activities 
collected by charges authorized by the Board of Trus- 
tees be expended for the support of activities on or 
closely related to the campus for which the charge is 
made and that no such funds (a) be applied to donations 
of any kind to individuals, groups, or organizations 
for activities off such campus, or for the support of 
programs conducted off such campus or (b) be applied to 
support the candidacy of individuals seeking public 
office.

for the 1970-71 academic year in the amount of $7.00 
($3.50 per semester), for a total tax of $36.50. 

Trustee Elters stated that the $36.50 tax level was agree- 
able to him, and that this was now up to the administration, "as the 
Student Senate is now effectively denied the decision-making power 
at this point." 

Chancellor Tippo responded to a query from Chairman Healey 
that no further parts of his August 4 memo now require Trustee 
action. 

President Wood presented the Personnel Actions, together 
with Supplements #1 and #2.

The Chairman recognized Dean Soutter who presented several Medical School 
items to the Board for its consideration. Report 



The Dean requested and obtained the permission of the 
Board to utilize a transcript seal for the Medical School on the 
premises in Worcester. It is emphasized that this is not the offi- 
cial University Seal, but a special seal which will be provided for 
the purpose of certifying the authenticity of transcript documents. 

Report was made of a visit by the Liaison Committee of AMA 
and AAMC on accreditation. Both groups were present for two days, 
and the Medical School has been accredited for the next two years. 

Dean Soutter reported that construction is now underway on 
the three main buildings at the Medical School site including the 
Power Plant, and proper supervision has become a problem. Commis- 
sioner Dwight has suggested that an outside engineering firm be 
engaged for this purpose. In order to strengthen the hand of the 
Bureau of Building Construction in obtaining permission for outside 
engineering help, the Dean seeks a vote requesting the Governor to 
engage an engineering firm for this purpose. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To request the Governor of the Commonwealth to lend his 
support to the engagement of an engineering firm to 
supervise construction projects at the University Medi 
cal School. 

The Dean invited the Board of Trustees to visit the Medi- 
cal School sometime this fall. It was agreed that dates for the 
visit be worked out with Secretary McCartney.

Federal Financ- 
ing Problems, 
Medical School, 
UM/Worcester 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

In conclusion, Dean Soutter reported on problems related 
to federal financing of Medical School projects. We have obtained, 
he said, funds for the Medical Science Building and capital outlay- 
funds from federal sources and from the state for the hospital, but 
the latter are contingent on federal participation to the extent of 
$16,000,000. Recently, he notified HEW that the Medical School was 
ready for federal funding, and that agency reported a new policy- 
decision that no additional hospitals are to be funded out of HEW 
moneys. Presently in the nation, 18 hospitals are fully approved, 
but have not been funded in a total amount of $256,000,000. The 
Health Manpower budget for the current fiscal year is $126,000,000, 
of which $96,000,000 is assigned to medical schools. However, the 
funds required for the various buildings now ready to begin con- 
struction (including our hospital) amount to $216,000,000. 

When filing their budget request, HEW added a recommenda- 
tion that no further appropriations for teaching hospital construc- 
tion be made from that source, but that Hill-Burton funds be used 
instead. Only $15,000,000 is available from that source; addition- 
ally, the Hill-Burton money is a loan fund, and is totally inade- 
quate to cover the $216,000,000 requirement. 

Dean Soutter reported that he and President Wood were 
active in Washington, D.C., attempting to raise the federal budget 
appropriation for hospital construction to $260,000,000; also, to 
remove language in the appropriation act which would prevent HEW 
funds from being used for hospital construction. However, even if 
these efforts are successful, President Nixon could veto the bill. 
If passed over his veto by Congress, the President may still restrair. 
the Bureau of the Budget from expending the money. Obviously, at 
the present time, the Medical School is in a very diffucult situa- 
tion with respect to federal funding of the hospital. 

President Wood added that the obstacles, while they seem 
great, are no greater than those over which the University triumphed 
at the state level. He expressed optimism with regard to action of 
the U.S. Senate and of the Congress as a whole. He noted that any 
solution at the federal level will call for a major policy change to 
accommodate what is apparently a small monetary item. The Trustees 
will be kept briefed on this matter by the President and a later 
report will be made to the full Board in September. 

The meeting was adjourned at 1:53 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood's major comments concerned the Fiscal Year 
1972 Operating Budget Request, Amherst Campus, Boston Campus, Medi- 
cal School, Field Stations (Document T71-029 ). The primary concern 
of the President's Office has been with analysis and review of this 
document, with specifics of this review to be presented later. 
(See budget revision, Document T71-029A . ) In addition to this 
budget work, the President said, he has been working with the Chair- 
man on Grievance and Governance items for the UM/Amherst and 
UM/Boston campuses. 

The President's Office is expecting to move to space in 
the Government Center between October 1 and 1$ 3 1970. A move to per 
manent headquarters is expected to take place some 16 months later. 

Chairman Troy reported for the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, which had met on September 1;. Considered and 
approved by the committee was the request of the Department for a 
Change in Title of the Department of Industrial Engineering, 
UM/Amherst, to Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations 
Research, UM/Amherst (Document T71-021+ ). The new title is expected 
to reflect more clearly the Department's current and planned academic 
and research interests. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the title of the Department of Industrial Engineer- ■ 
ing, UM/Amherst, be changed to the Department of Indus 
trial Engineering and Operations Research, UM/Amherst. 

A parallel request is recommended: Change Title of the 
Department of Agricultural Engineering, UM/Amherst, to the Depart - 
ment of Food and Agricultural Engineering, UM/Amherst. The new 
title will more clearly indicate the unique aspects of this program 
and its recognized leadership in the field of study of food produc- 
tion, manufacturing, and processing and distributing of food products 
in terms of modern engineering practices. 

In response to Trustee Gordon's request for clarification 
of the status of the Department of Food Science, it was stressed that 
this change in no way affects the autonomous operation of the Depart 
ment of Food Science within the College of Agriculture. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the title of the Department of Agricultural Engi- 
neering, UM/Amherst, be changed to the Department of 
Food and Agricultural Engineering, UM/Amherst. 



Titles of Medical 
School Faculty, 
UM/Worc ester 



Titles of Medical School Faculty had been discussed by the 
Committee, Chairman Troy said. Dean Soutter has requested recogni- 
tion of the specialized requirements of the Medical School and asks 
that the position of "Associate" be authorized, to rank between 
Instructor and Assistant Professor. This title is in use at a num- 
ber of other medical schools and would indicate a position to which 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

a deserving Instructor can be promoted, if he does not 1 qualify for 
professorial rank. It would be reserved for voluntary and part-time 
faculty. 

The Committee has finally decided, Chairman Troy, said, to 
defer action until President Wood has had more opportunity to review 
this request. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Federico Welsch as Asso- 
ciate Professor of Biochemstry, UM/Worcester. 

Chancellor Broderick was invited to review the next item, 
Personnel Actions, UM/Boston, related to the Ford Foundation Award 



3405 



recently received for a Study of Directions in Education for UM/Boston 
in order to provide the best service to the Greater Boston community. 

The Chancellor requested permission of the Board, due to 
lateness of the award and difficulties in recruitment, to process now 
four or five late appointments (all non-state funded) prior to formal 
approval of the Board at the October meeting. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the request of Chancellor Broderick that up 

to five additional UM/Boston appointments (all non-state 
funded) be processed prior to the October meeting of the 
Board, such appointments to be funded entirely by a Ford 
Foundation Award for Study of Directions in Education 
for the University of Massachusetts/Boston. 

Chairman Troy next reviewed Amendments to the Faculty 
Senate Constitution, UM/Amherst — Tenure and Grievance Proposal (Trus- 



tee Document T71-023 , Senate Document 7O-O6I4A). This document imple- 
ments the Special Report of the Rules Committee on Tenure and Griev- 
ance, Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst, and was approved on May 28, 1970. 
"he Report, Chairman Troy said, in no way seeks to change the rules 
jf governance as established by the Board of Trustees' l°61j. Statement, 
tether, he said, it defines a "grievance" and outlines methods of 
handling such cases. The most novel procedure outlined in the pro 
posal, the Chairman said, is to establish a committee within each col- 
lege or school or faculty the function of which is to resolve disputes 
Ln a"somewhat mediatory and conciliatory manner." The committees 
■(Till function well, he added, only if the members by their personal 
character and distinction lend great weight and prestige to discus- 
sions. 

President Wood emphasized that Chairman Troy was presenting 
a set of procedures for the Amherst campus, but that "this has impli- 
cations for all three campuses." He added that this would not be the 
Last time the Board would consider its policy toward grievance pro- 
cedures. He did not interpret the present language for Amherst as an 
automatic referral for all grievance cases either to the President or

the Board of Trustees. The bulk of the work, he felt, would be done 
at the campus level with much emphasis being placed on the point 
stressed by Chairman Troy on "conciliatory" aspects of the work of 
the respective campus committees. 

Chairman Healey noted that it was incumbent on the Board 
to lay down the basic rules concerning tenure and grievance pro- 
cedures, but that this should not mean automatic referral to the 
Board of personnel cases.. He pointed out the Board's primary 
responsibilities for formulation of the broad policies of University 
operation, rather than involvement with individual cases. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Constitution of the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst 
be amended as follows (words in parentheses are to be 
deleted, while those underlined are to be added) : 

8. (k) There shall be a UM/Amherst Tenure and Grievance 
Committee J 

(1) To serve as an Examining Board for the hear- 
ing of cases pertaining to tenure and dismis 
sal , and 

(2) To (seek the settlement of other) serve as a 



Grievance Panel for the hearing of grievances 
of faculty members, and 

(3) To formulate and review UM/Amherst campus - 
wide Personnel Policies and Procedures . 

Concerning cases of tenure and dismissal, the committee 
shall be governed by the "Procedure for Faculty Action 
on Tenure and Dismissal" dated February 27, 1961;, and 
any subsequent amendments to this procedure duly 
adopted. Concerning (other) grievance cases the com- 
mittee shall (hear the grievance and seek to nago-eiata 
its appropriate remedy) be governed by the "Procedure 
-x- for Processing Grievance Cases" dated April 16, 1970 , 
and any subsequent amendments to this procedure duly 
adopted . 

The membership of the committee shall be one faculty 
member on tenure from each School or College except 
there shall be one from each Faculty of the College of 
Arts and Sciences . If a School or College does not 
have a faculty member on tenure, the Rules Committee 
shall provide for the pro tern representative. The 
(elected senators) faculty from each School or College 
or Faculty shall elect the member to serve on this com- 
mittee j the Rules Committee shall oversee these elec- 
tions . 

-x- If and when approved by the UM/Amherst administration. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Terras of membership shall be as stipulated in the By- 
laws, except that the terra of a member serving as a 
member of an Examining Board or a Grievance Panel con- 
vened to consider a tenure and dismissal or grievance 
case shall continue until such consideration has been 
completed. The chairman of this committee shall be 
elected annually by the membership of the committee. 

For any given case the committee shall appoint two 
additional faculty members on tenure from the School or 
College or Faculty of the faculty member whose tenure 
or grievance is under consideration. 

The committee shall formulate UM/Amherst carapuswide 
Personnel Policies and Procedures and shall review 
existing policies and procedures at the request of the 
Board of Trustees, Chancellor, Provost, Deans' Council, 
Faculty Senate, or any School Personnel Policy Commit- 
tee. After appropriate consultation with the Chancel- 
lor and/ or Provost, and Deans' Council, such policies 
and procedures shall be submitted to the Faculty Senate 



for approval; the Administration shall transmit such

carapuswide policy and procedures shall supersede any 
UM/Araherst school policy found in conflict with it . 

The Report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
next presented by Chairman Haigis. He mentioned that the report of 
the meeting held on September 10 has been circulated. The Gorman 
House, UM/Amherst, item has been dropped from the agenda for the 
present and referred back through the appropriate administrative 
channels . 

The Proposed Agreement, UM/Boston, and Columbia Point 
Action Coalition which was discussed at the committee meeting is 
being moved to the Presidential Agenda and will be discussed later 
in this meeting by President Wood. 

Regarding Budget and Schedule, UM/Boston , Chairman Haigis Budget and 
said that, in spite of publicized budgetary "cuts" (from $1^0 mil- Schedule, 
lion to $130 million) and certain site difficulties, "there is still UM/Boston, 
a good chance of opening the UM/Boston campus at Columbia Point in at Columbia 
1972." A $9.9 million transit link item cut from the budget, he j Point 
felt, might be restored at a later date depending on circumstances. 

The methane gas situation is being investigated, the 
Chairman said. A full report will be made to the Trustees as soon 
as it is received from consultants working on this problem. 

Chairman Haigis called on UM/Boston Planning Officer 
O'Brien to summarize the budget situation as it affects buildings 
and construction. Mr. O'Brien noted that an additional 5> percent 
escalation contingency allowance has been authorized this year and

could add some $6 million to funds for the project. Also, some land 
acquisition could be deferred which would yield additional funds. 
Mr. O'Brien felt that these emergency measures might permit a $16 
million reduction in the budget of $15>0 million as originally pro- 
posed. Design for College Three is expected to proceed now in order 
not to lose valuable time later on in the construction schedule. 

Chairman Haigis next summarized the Review of Working

ments to Univer-

Service Building, and Chiller Building, UM/Boston , noting that Dean 
Belluschi and Mr. Sasaki both approve progress made to date. The 
Chairman especially noted the unusual degree of cooperation existing 
between the BBC, the University administration, and the architects 
on the Columbia Point project. 

The Chairman proposed an addition to the Committee vote as 
shown in the committee's September 10 minutes, as follows: "All of 
the foregoing to be subject to the usual procedures of the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds and the Board of Trustees . " 

With this correction, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That Vice Chancellor William R. Hamilton, Jr. , be, and 
he hereby is, authorized on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts to approve 
working drawings for Buildings 090, 110, 1^0, and 160 
including all contracts under the supervision of 
Charles T. Main, and to approve specifications, includ- 
ing specifications for exterior building finish mate- 
rials on said projects for the Columbia Point campus of 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston. All of the 
foregoing to be subject to the usual procedures of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds and the Board of 
Trustees. 

Chairman Healey next reported for the Executive Committee 
meeting of September 9. He called upon Mr. Littlefield to summarize 
the Transfer of University and Lincoln Apartments to the University 
and Establishment of Rent Rates . These schedules reflect, Mr. Lit- 
tlefield said, the first of two increases necessary to place these 
units on a self -liquidating basis. They have been reviewed and 
approved by the Married Student Housing Committee. The first 
increase will cover the period November 1, 1970, through August, 
1971. The second increase, after thorough study of actual operating 
costs and review by the Married Student Committee, will be effective 
from September 1, 1971. 

The facilities are now occupied one -third by faculty and 
staff and two-thirds by students. By September 1971, it is expected 
that these units will be entirely occupied by students, with the 
exception of 5> percent of total University housing which will be 
reserved for visiting faculty with short duration tenures. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and

Chairman Healey next considered The Campus Center Proposal ^ Campus Center 
UM/Amherst . Mr. Warren Grinnan, Manager of the Center, stated that ) Proposal, 
the proposal had been reviewed in its entirety by the Executive Com- UM/Amherst 
mittee, and had also been detailed in documents previously circu- 
lated to members of the Board (Document T71-028 , Report on Regula- 
tions and Procedures for Alcoholic Beverages Service in the Campus 
Center; and Document T71-027 , Proposed Top of the Campus, Inc., By- 
laws ) . 

In response to Trustee Elters ' question as to student par- 
ticipation in preparation of the proposal, Mr. Grinnan replied that 
the Student Union Governing (SUG) Board had been involved in the 
planning sessions and had approved the proposals being presented. 

Trustee Shaler requested an explanation for rumored "grow- 
ing student discontent" with the Campus Center. Chancellor Tippo 
suggested that Trustee Elters present the student viewpoint. Trus- 
tee Elters said that students' main objections "were on the finan- 
cial aspects of the building; that students are paying for a build- 
ing they do not substantially control." He added that the "sheer 
magnitude" of the building bothered some students, although, he 
added, students realize that the building is good architecturally. 

Chancellor Tippo responded that there are apparent mis- 
understandiags regarding the financial operation of the Center. The 
parking garage, cafeterias, hotel rooms, bookstore, etc., are all 
self -liquidating. The University is providing a quarter of a mil- 
lion dollars in utilities and maintenance costs. The $18 increase 
in the student fee provides for vastly increased student space, an 
increase of about four times over space previously available for 
student use. The facts regarding the Campus Center operation, he 
said, are widely available. Hopefully, they will reach increasing 
numbers of the student body. 

Chairman Healey observed that the basic difficulty was in 
allocation of use and in the cost of the Campus Center. He added 
that the present method of financing seemed best when the building 
was planned. 



Trustee Knowles commented that she had attended the August 
architectural conference which opened the Center. She mentioned 
only one criticism of the building: that there are "miles of corri- 
dors with cement walls against which voices reverberate." During a 
conversation with architect Vincent Kling, Mrs. Knowles said, he had 
suggested that perhaps a plan for hanging tapestries or other wall

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

coverings might be devised for acoustical purposes. She suggested 
a student competition for the design of such wall coverings, which 
would have the twofold purpose of deadening sound while at the same 
time stimulating artistic talent and giving students a part in cre- 
ating a warmer atmosphere in the building. Mr. Grinnan noted that 
the building plans already called for installation of "art tracks" 
on the two lower levels of the building to convert the walls for use 
as an art gallery. This work is in progress but not yet complete. 

Chairman Healey felt that use of the walls for art dis- 
plays would still not provide a complete sound absorption element. 
Nevertheless, he expressed enthusiastic approval of Trustee Khowles ' 
suggestion. It was the sense of the Board to encourage Mrs. Knowles 
in this endeavor. 

In response to Trustee Elters' question as to student 
membership on the Board of Directors of the Top of the Campus, Inc.. 
Mr. Grinnan said that there were no students on the board. The 
reasons are: (l) directors must be over 21 years of age and (2) 
continuity of membership is necessary in the Top of the Campus, 
which is the holding body for the license. Mr. Grinnan added that 
the Top of the Campus directors do not make policy, all of which is 
directed through the SUG Board and the Manager of the Top of the 
Campus. 

Mr. Grinnan noted two changes in the original documents as 
mailed to the Trustees: Document T71-028 , p. Ij., under "Beverage 
Serving Personnel," the last line should read "employee . . . will 
be covered by liability insurance purchased by the Top of the Cam- 
pus, Inc." (rather than the Food Service Department). The second 
change is the addition of item f> of the vote pertaining to the 
Rathskeller operation, added per suggestion of the Executive Commit- 
tee, to the original document. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Top of the Campus, Inc., to service the 
Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center as set forth in the 
bylaws of Top of the Campus, Inc., said bylaws being 
set forth in Document T71-027 , a copy of which is on 
file with the Office of the Secretary of the Board of 
Trustees; further, to authorize the operation of Top 
of the Campus, Inc., in accordance with the following 
rules and regulations : 

1. Top of the Campus, Inc., will comply with the rules 
and regulations set forth in a document entitled 
"Report on Regulations and Procedures for Alcoholic 
Beverages Service in the Campus Center Submitted to 
the Board of Trustees of the University of Massa- 
chusetts by Warren T. Grinnan, Campus Center Mana- 
ger, August 3, 1970," a copy of which instrument is 
on file with the Office of the Secretary of the 
Board of Trustees and is designated as Document 
T71-028.

2. Any misconduct on the part of students while they 
are participating in activities of Top of the Campus, 
Inc., is to be reported by the corporation to the 
De^n of Students. Any similar misconduct on the part 
of staff or other employees of the University is to 
to be reported by the corporation to the appropriate 
Principal Administrative Officer. Such reporting 
by Top of the Campus, Inc., is to be exclusive of any 
disciplinary action taken by the corporation toward 
its club members. 

3. The Price of alcoholic beverages is to be set by 
Directors of Top of the Campus, Inc. 

km Alcoholic beverages will not be sold anywhere other 
than in those areas in the Murray D. Lincoln Campus 
Center indicated on the application for a license 
to sell alcoholic beverages dated December 9, 1969, 
and submitted to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

5. No "Rathskeller" operation shall be undertaken for 
the sale of wine, beer, or other alcoholic beverage, 
as licensed by the Alcoholic Beverages Control Com- 
mission, without specific vote of authorization by 
the Board of the Trustees of the University. 

Chaiiman Healey referred discussion of the 1972 Operating 
Budget Request to President Wood. 



3413 



9-1U-70 



I 



The President noted that members of the Board had received 
some ten days previously in his memorandum on the subject of 
consolidated budget requests (Document T 71-031 )* The President's 
Office, he said, had undertaken during this current transitional 
period to make only this limited analysis. The analysis attempts 
(1) to make initial recommendations regarding funds and appropriatio4s 
for the individual campuses, and (2) to identify specific items for 
a process of further informational review with Chancellors and Deans. 

The Board is being asked to approve at this time what is, 
in effect, a ceiling on the total budget request, the President 
said. Additionally, approval is also being requested for approval 
of the initial budget for the System Office, as well as the budget 
for the separate operation of the newly formed Institute for 
Governmental Services. 

Chairman Healey reemphasized the fact that the System 
Office would not be a "super-organization" or another operating arm 
of the University. If, however, the System Office is to realize its 
objectivies in the restructuring of the University, it is essential 
that the President have the necessary staff and organization. 

Trustee Lyons applauded the budget memorandum as "the 
first concrete evidence of a system operation." In the comparative 
cost figures for individual campuses given on page 2, he queried

whether the larger figure for UM/Amherst was due to the fact that 
the Amherst campus has a higher ratio of senior professors. 

President Wood replied that one consideration, of course, 
would be the fact that UM/Amherst supports the traditionally greater 
expense for graduate education; also, that there should be no expec- 
tation of uniformity of budget and cost figures for the individual 
campuses, particularly on the basis of this preliminary and tenta- 
tive analysis. 

Chancellor Tippo noted other factors that should be con- 
sidered if comparisons are to be made, such as deducts from total 01 
expense for clerical and technical positions, control and experiment 
station budgets, and the cost of residence hall operation at 
UM/Amherst. President Wood agreed that these exceptions would 
indeed apply to figures for UM/Amherst. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the recommendations of President Wood on the 
University's 1972 Operating Budget Request as revised 
(Document T71-029A ); also, to approve the request as a 
ceiling budget subject to continuing review and refine- 
ment as determined by the President in consultation 
with the Chancellors and the Dean of the Medical School 

The Proposal for University Governance, UM/Boston , was 
next reviewed by Chancellor Broderick, at Chairman Healey's request. 
The history of this proposal (Document T70-061) was detailed by the 
Chancellor. The Executive Committee has twice reviewed the proposal 
and it will be resubmitted shortly to the UM/Boston student body for 
an expected affirmative vote if it can now be approved in principle 
by the Board. 

Chairman Healey stated that the two main points of dis- 
agreement — the proposed U0 percent ratio of students on the UM/Bos- 
ton governing body and the method of selecting departmental chair- 
men — were resolved as far as the Executive Committee was concerned. 
The committee, he said, has approved the basic structure of the doc 
ument. Comments for suggested changes in wording of the document 
are now in process of being received at UM/Boston from the President 
and the Trustees, and the document is now submitted to the Board 
pending approval of the suggested changes. 

Trustee Gordon reiterated a point he had made previously 
at committee meetings as well as to the Chancellor and the student 
body at UM/Boston, expressing "strong reservations" as to the method 
of departmental governance and the selection of departmental chair- 
men. 

Trustee Troy agreed with this position, saying he would 
like to see "more scope given the Dean. " Chancellor Broderick 
thought it would be possible at the level of editorial changes to 
make more specific references to the Dean's authority. Chairman

Healey observed that the Dean's authority is on a delegated basis, 
in any case, and that the departmental chairman is elected subject 
to the approval of the Board. 

President Wood stated that his position was as stated in 
the Executive Committee minutes of September 9 and "remains the 
same . " 

Chancellor Tippo had made it clear at the committee meet- 
ing on this topic that he interpreted provisions of the governance 
document, including the mechanism for selection of departmental 
chairmen, as applying strictly to UM/Boston and not to other cam- 
puses in the System. 



After further discussion, and on motion made and seconded, 



it was 



VOTED ; To approve in principle the UM/Boston Governance Pro- 
posal ( Document T70-061 ) pending final approval of 
changes of wording based on comments to be received 
from the President and the Trustees, and approval by 
the UM/Boston student body. 

Trustee Rowland is recorded as abstaining. 

Student Fees, Campus Center, UM/Amherst, was reviewed by 
Treasurer Johnson. He said that University counsel was now advising 
that it was desirable and necessary that accounts for the Student 
Union and the Campus Center be kept separately, as two distinct, 
self -liquidating projects. There are no changes in fees, merely 
some redistribution of funds. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the schedule of rates, fees, rentals, and other 

charges for the use of accommodations in and goods and 
services provided in the project undertaken by Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Building Authority pursuant to

Chairman Healey next requested the formal authorization of 
the Board on the 10^-per-mile travel authorization recently allowed 
by the Commonwealth. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the mileage allowance for University employees 

operating their own motor vehicles in the performance 
of official duties be raised from 8 to 10 cents per

tion to which a member of the professional staff is 
hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, or determined

tees or under their authority. 

Report on the Lagoon Situation — Columbia Point was next 
discussed by President Wood, who expressed gratitude to Chairman 
Haigis for moving this item to the Presidential agenda from that of 
the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. The President noted that 
there was a delegation present from the Columbia Point Action Coali- 
tion and that the Coalition's attorney, Mr. Andrew Wolfe, was also 
present. 

The Lagoon situation and a proposed agreement between the 
Columbia Point Action Coalition and the University had been dis- 
cussed extensively at the meeting of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds held on September 10. A full report of this meeting has beer 
circulated. 

President Wood spoke of the great complexity and difficul- 
ties involved in construction of a major University site, and the 
impact of this construction and development on the lives of the 
residents of the area. He mentioned inevitable conflicts between 
the necessity to build desperately needed educational facilities and 
the desire to be a good neighbor to the community. "The major pur- 
pose of the University has to go forward, " he said, "but it has to 
go forward in terms of a concern with the impact of this process and 
with shared participation." 

Day-to-day responsibility for this complicated process 
must be borne by the UM/Boston Chancellor and Vice Chancellor along 
with the UM/Boston campus, the President said. As much help as pos- 
sible should come from the other campuses, from the President, and 
from the Trustees. Clear policy guidelines must be established that 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

do not contrain or add inflexibility to the process, but rather 
clarify the purpose. 

"Vice Chancellor Hamilton operated with the residents of 
the Point," the President continued, "in establishing an agreement 
that has been before you, and discussed. It represents not commit- 
ments or resources or principles as much as a first step in what 
must be a continuing process. In terms of specifics, we are a long 
way from knowing what is possible, desirable, or feasible from the 
point of view of the Board's responsibilities." 

President Wood next presented a proposed policy statement 
on the UM/Boston lagoon situation for the Board's consideration, as 
a possible first step in moving the program forward in the inter- 
ests of both the University and the Columbia Point community. 

This statement, and the related issue of the agreement 
proposed by the CPAC, were extensively discussed. Committee Chair- 
man Haigis noted that Trustee Maginnis, as a member of the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds, had pointed out that the last sentence of 
the President's proposed policy statement should read: "The Board 
. . . acknowledges the aspirations of the CPAC as outlined in the 
August 3, 1970, Agreement presented to the University." The Commit- 
tee on Buildings and Grounds, while in complete sympathy with the 
spirit of the discussions and the aspirations of the CPAC, had not 
accepted the agreement. 

President Wood, speaking from a background of experience 
in this kind of negotiation, described the CPAC proposal as being in 
his judgment not more, at this stage, than a memorandum of agreement 
without specificity of determination on particular points at issue. 

Chairman Healey noted that Mr. Wolfe had requested a change 
in the President's proposed policy statement as follows: that the 
last paragraph read, "The Board directs the President to implement 
the policy and the August 3, 1970, agreement between the CPAC and 
the University. " Chairman Healey felt "that this change is unaccep- 
table in that it would place a legalistic characterization on the 
proposed policy statement that would be most difficult for the 
Board to adopt at this state of the discussions." 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : With respect to development of the UM/Boston campus at 
Columbia Point, in recognition of its responsibility as 
a public institution of higher learning and its obliga- 
tion to serve the communities in which its campuses 
reside as well as the State as a whole, the Board of 
Trustees affirms that the University will: 

1. Cooperate in the planning of facilities suitable 
for mutual use — and later in their actual use. 

2. Consult with the community during the planning pro- 
cess on all matters that will affect the community.

3. Initiate programs designed to assist in the employ-

k- Establish a University-Resident Task Force that 
will review existing site plans and recommend 
changes thereto based on the continuing involvement 
of faculty and students with the residents. 

The Board directs the President to implement the policy 
and the August 3, 1970 , agreement between the CPAC and 
the University. 

It is recorded that Mr. Wolfe, for the CPAC, stated that 
he would stand by his request for changes in the policy statement, 
as read to the Board. "Naturally," he said, "we would be happier if 
the August 3, 1970, proposed agreement could be ratified in its 
entirety, as well as the policy statement. If, however, you see fit 
not to do that, we will look to the President for meaningful imple- 
mentation of the policy statement." 

Trustee Lyons observed that additional legislation would 
be necessary before the University could consider appropriation of 
funds for purposes other than those related to the educational 
activities and facilities now authorized. ,r We would assume," he 
said, "that the CPAC would share the responsibility for requesting 
additional legislation should the need arise." He added that "we 
cannot do something for which we are neither funded nor authorized." 

President Wood, in a final statement, said that the Univer 
sity is assuming a heavy responsibility in exploring the issues and 
in determining their feasibility. This responsibility, he added, 
cannot be placed on the community to develop themselves, and "we 
accept it in good offices." 

Trustee Lyons reported briefly as the Trustee Delegate 
to the Board of Higher Education. The proposed Master Plan will be 
coming up for discussion this fall. The University administration 
and members of the Board of Trustees will be asked to participate. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:35> p.m.

committees and is to be presented to the full Board for final action 
in November. 

University Counsel Broadhurst has begun the process of 
codifying procedures related to rules, regulations, and student con- 
duct, the President said, for possible application on a University- 
wide basis. Also, revision of procedures related to Board of Trus- 
tee activities has been under consideration by the Executive Commit- 
tee, and this proposal will be presented to the full Board for 
approval.

Status of ROTC negotiations had been reviewed by Chancellor 
Tippo. Two meetings were held with representatives of the Air Force 
and the Army. Subsequent letters indicate that most of the recom- 
mendations made by the UM/Amherst Faculty Senate and the Board of 
Trustees are agreeable. Appropriate legislation is being prepared 
for the next session of Congress to provide reimbursement of costs. 

Dean Hoopes had reported to the committee on Organization

under a federal grant, a contract must be signed between UM/Boston 
and the Boston School Committee in the amount of approximately 
$2,300. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; That Vice -Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, be and hereby 
is authorized to sign a contract with the School Commit- 
tee of Boston in the amount of $2,300 so that the School 
Committee may be enabled to pay tuition to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts for library aides in the public 
schools of Boston who desire to take certain courses at 
UM/Boston during the current academic year. 

Chairman Healey reported on the Executive Committee meeting 
of October 16. 

Organization of President's Office was reviewed in detail 
and is essentially as proposed in the President's memorandum of 
September 3. Discussing this matter, President Wood noted that 
counsel had raised the question of inherent authority for organiza- 
tion of the President's Office. Therefore, he prefers that this be 
considered and approved by the Board of Trustees. He added that this 
mich detail must be approved so he could go forward with the plans 
for his office but that evaluation of the effectiveness of the 
organization will continue. The President then requested approval of 
the plan for organization as outlined in the memoranda of September 3 
and October 23 (Documents T71-OU2 and T71-0U- ). 

Major points of the proposal call for establishment of the 
Offices of Vice President for Administration, Vice President for 
Development, and the Office of the Treasurer, all reporting directly 
bo the President. Also reporting directly to. the President would be 
two Institutes: the Institute for Labor Affairs and the Institute 
Cor Governmental Services. 

The President noted that the proposed Institute for Labor I Institute for 
Affairs is coming before the full Board for the first time, although Labor Affairs 
this matter has been extensively discussed in administrative sessions 
and at the meeting of the Executive Committee. Consultation has been; 
held on an informal basis with Professor Ben B. Seligman, Director of | 

he Labor Relations and Research Center, and with Associate Dean 

rthur Gentile of the Graduate School. 

Questions have been raised, the President said, regarding 
he proposed reorganization of the Labor Center's Extension Program, 
e added that he was cognizant of, and sensitive to, the concern of 
faculty and students in this matter. 

Chairman Healey opened the matter to discussion. 

Trustee Elters observed that there had doubtless been a

necessity for an early decision on the Labor Bureau reorganization, 
but stated his feeling that "students and faculty have definitely 
not been involved to the extent that they should have been on a 
decision of this magnitude." He recognized, he said, the necessity 
for the President to make many administrative decisions but 
expressed the hope that there could be more student-faculty involve- 
ment in this decision. 

Mr. Elters then proposed the following amendment to the 
motion for approval of the Organization of the Office of the Presi- 
dent: That an Advisory Committee of two graduate students and two 
faculty members, selected from the Labor Center, be established by 
the President of the University to aid in establishing guidelines 
for the future of the Labor Center, both in its academic program and 
its extension activities. 

Professor John Roberts, speaking as Representative of the 
UM/Amherst Faculty Senate, said he thought the Senate would have no 
objection to the general administrative reorganization as outlined 
by the President. He did feel, however, that the Senate would like 
to see more time allowed on the Labor Center decision. The Labor 
Center Interdisciplinary Committee, he added, would like to look 
into the matter. 

•After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the general plan for Organization of the 

President's Office as outlined in the President's memo- 
randa of September 3 and October 23, 1970 (Documents 
T71-OJJ.2 and T71-0l|l ) with the provision that an 
Advisory Committee of two graduate students and two 
faculty members selected from the Labor Center be 
established by the President of the University to aid 
in establishing guidelines for the future of the Labor 
Center, both in its academic program and its extension 
activities. 

At Chairman Healey's invitation, Secretary McCartney 
reviewed the Procedural Changes relating to Trustee activities that 
he has drafted for the Board's consideration. The Secretary noted 
the substantial increase in the business of the Board, with 60 to 1$ 
regularly scheduled meetings each year. The proposal covers pro- 
cedures, deadlines for meeting dates, and submission of material, as 
well as regulation of attendance at meetings and luncheons. There 
has been some objection, Secretary McCartney noted, to one feature of 
the proposal — a fixed schedule for committee meeting dates. 

Chairman Healey recommended adoption of the procedures as 
outlined in Secretary McCartney's memorandum (Document T70-0U0), with 
the exception of the schedule of fixed committee dates. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the procedural changes for the Board of 

Trustees outlined in the Secretary's Memorandum (Docu- 
ment T70-0l*0 ), with deletion of the schedule of fixed 
dates for committee meetings. 

Deliberation on the matter of Honorary Degrees is pro- 
ceeding, Chairman Healey said, within the framework of procedures 
adopted by the Trustees. 

The Report of the Finance Committee meeting of October 16 
was next presented by Committee Chairman Pumphret. The Endowment 
Fund portfolio had been reviewed by the committee and minor changes 
in the Fund had been approved. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University, Kenneth M 
Johnson, to execute the following changes in the Univer-

Five new Endowment Funds, UM/Amherst, are recommended for 
acceptance. Some discussion ensued on the possibility of setting 
minimum amounts for endowment funds, due to administrative expense 
involved. Treasurer Johnson pointed out that there is every expec- 
tation that the smaller funds will grow through additional dona- 
tions. There was general agreement that no restrictions will be 
placed on initial endowment funds at the present time, with further 
review of this matter anticipated. 

The new funds are to be established as follows, with 
principle invested and income used as indicated in each case:

The Quarterly Report of the Treasurer was reviewed by the 
Committee. No action was necessary on this item. 

Budget Transfers, UM/Amherst, were proposed as follows: 

(a) To transfer the salaries attached to "vacant faculty posi- 
tions from 01 to 03 for the stipends of teaching assistants 
who support the faculty. This step is necessary to assure 
that all departments are staffed at an adequate level for 
instruction $1+20,950 

(b) To transfer funds to raise the standard stipend for gradu- 
ate teaching assistants from $3,000 to $3,200 for nine 
months. $150 of this raise represents inflation since the 
last adjustment of this stipend. This item was in our 1971 
budget request $150,^00 

(c) To transfer the salaries of vacant faculty positions which 
have been committed to the appointment of visiting 
lecturers $ 1+5,1+00 

(d) To transfer funds to the Physical Plant Department to per- 
mit increased use of outside architectural and engineering 
services in the alteration and maintenance programs 

. . . $ 75,000 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve transfer of $691,750 from account 01 to 
account 03, UM/Amherst. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve transfer of $113,600 from account 01 to 

account 02, UM/Amherst, for the purpose of covering the 
cost of sabbatical leave replacements and sick leave 
replacements, the appropriations being insufficient for 
these purposes. 

He Budget Transfers, UM/Amherst, Item (a), Transfer of 
$1+20,950 for teaching assistants, Chairman Healey asked if this 
meant a reduction in faculty teaching loads and if so it was unde- 
sirable. Chancellor Tippo replied that actually an attempt was being 
made to reverse this trend by requiring at least nine classroom 
hours per faculty member, and up to fifteen hours if the faculty 
member is not actively engaged in research. The funds in question 
are for temporary replacements, laboratory assistants, etc. 



A Cash Overage for receiving tellers, UM/Amherst, was 
noted. After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That Treasurer Kenneth ¥. Johnson be and hereby is 

authorized to transfer the UM/Amherst Campus cash over 
age for receiving tellers in the Treasurer's Office in 
the amount of $l61+.82 for Fiscal Year 1970 to the Trust

A Budget Transfer, UM/Wbrcester, i s also recommended for 
the purchase of two panel trucks and a truck with snow removal 
equipment. On motion made and seconded, it was 

TOTED: To approve the transfer of $11,900 from subsidiary 

account 08 (heat, etc.) to subsidiary account 15 (equip- 
ment) in the Medical School appropriation account 
710-1-1005 (1350-38). . 

The Buildings and Grounds Committee Report was next pre- 
sented by Committee Chairman Haigis. 

Power Plant — Tillson Farm, UM/Amherst, has been the sub- 
ject of extensive study by the Committee. Cost is now estimated up 
to $10,750,000, rather than the $9 million original 1 y estimated. 
All possible sources of power have been explored as well as alter- 
nate locations for the facility and alternate sources of fuel. The 
most comprehensive professional studies possible covering all 
aspects of the power plant construction and operation have been 
carried out. These have included careful consideration of pollution 
factors and antipollution devices. The present plant is to remain 
as an auxiliary, standby facility. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the general arrangement for preliminary 

plans for construction of the Tillson Farm Power Plant, 
UM/Amherst, as presented by the engineering firm of 
Jackson and Moreland. 

It was also 

VOTED : To recommend to the Bureau of Building Construction 
that it request the engineering firm of Jackson and 
Moreland to furnish a report to the Trustees of the 
University of Massachusetts and the BBC on possible fuel 
shortages and plans for alternate fuel supply arrange- 
ments without delay of the design of the present plant. 

Modular Classroom Sites have been studied by the Committee 
and are being recommended. Mr. Littlefield described the units as 
being 70$ office space and 30$ classroom space, completely relocat- 
able, and although "temporary," durability expected is up to 30 
years. 

Chancellor Moore noted that the experience at Massachusetts 
Bay Community College with units of this type had been completely 
favorable $ that students had wanted their relocatable buildings 
noved with them to their new campus; also that these structures had 
provided a degree of intimacy lacking in more formal buildings* 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



TRUSTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve three sites for the location of modular 
facilities : 

1. On the former lacrosse field between Boyden and 
. Hicks (approximately 70,000 gross square feet). 

2. Between Stockbridge and Infirmary Road on the site 
formerly occupied by the old Conservation Building 
(approximately 20,000 gross square feet). 

3. East of the Marks Meadow playground (10,000 gross 
square feet). 

The Sasaki Report on Housing has been discussed at length 
by the Committee, Chairman Haigis said. Another meeting of the Com- 
mittee on Buildings and Grounds has been planned for the near 
future to discuss University growth and the implications for the 
future. 

Boathouse for the Crew, UM/Amherst, and the proposed pur- 
chase of this now-rented facility was reviewed for informational 
purposes by Chairman Haigis. A future sailing program on the 
Connecticut River is hoped to be an outgrowth of expansion of the 
crew program and facilities. 

Fraternity-Sorority Park, UM/Amherst, and the current 
financial problems of the developers were discussed. The committee 
recommends, and after discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To reaffirm the University policy of approval of the 
concept of the present arrangement for Fraternity- 
Sorority Park, UM/Amherst. 

Fine Arts Building, UM/Amherst, was discussed by the 
Chairman and UM/Amherst Director of Planning Littlef ield who noted 
that awarding of bids on this project, expected shortly, is the 
culmination of seven years of effort. Total cost is estimated at 
$15,300,000. All expectations are that this will be one of the out- 
standing Fine Arts Buildings to be found on any campus. 

Project Office, Columbia Point. Continuation of operation 
is recommended. This joint venture involving UM/Boston planning 
personnel working together under one roof with the building archi- 
tects and representatives of BBC has been a most successful opera- 
tion and has resulted in great reduction of expense on this project. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To endorse the concept of a Project Office operation 
throughout Columbia Point construction. 

Dean Soutter requested action on a study to locate stu- 
dent housing sites at UM/Worcester.

Additional Powers — Security Guards, UM/Amherst, was Additional 

requested by Chancellor Tippo. The Chancellor noted that there has : Powers — 

been some difficulty with respect to security on the Amherst campus, ! Security Guards, 

particularly when outsiders are involved. A particular problem is UM/Amherst 
that only Police Officers have been empowered to arrest on-the-spot 
persons suspected of a theft or other offense. 

The Chancellor said that he has held consultations with Drt 
Bromery and that he is now requesting authority to empower Security 
Guards, as well as Police Officers, to make on-the-spot arrests. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : In order to provide for the security of persons and 

property on an emergency basis, there is hereby dele- 
gated to the principal officer of the UM/Amherst Campus, 
Chancellor Oswald Tippo, the authority to appoint under 
the provisions of Section 32A of Chapter 75 of the 
General Laws Police Officers who shall have such 
duties and authority on the UM/Amherst Campus as may 
from tine to time be assigned by the Chancellor as he 
may deem necessary or desirable for security through 
the end of the present semester. 

An invitation to the SWAP Conference, 1970, was extended 
to the Board of Trustees by Miss Betty Pugh on behalf of the SWAP 
Committee. Miss Pugh announced the dates for the Conference: 
December U, 12, and 13, at Oak 'n' Spruce in South Lee, Massachu- 
setts. The theme of this year's Conference, Miss Pugh said, is 
Planning for the Future: Where do we go from here? Pointing out 
the fact that the SWAP Conference is one of the few opportunities 
for students, Trustees, faculty, and administrators to get together 
for informal discussion in a relaxed atmosphere, Miss Pugh expressed 
the hope that many members of the Board could be present. Programs 
and formal invitations will be mailed shortly. 

Mrs. Rowland, Chancellor Tippo noted, has expressed con- 
cern that the later date set for this year's conference will affect 
attendance. Miss Pugh expressed regret that conflicts with other 
events, including Legislators Day, had precluded an earlier date. 
The SWAP Committee, she said, is writing Mrs. Rowland a personal 
letter of appreciation for her past, and enthusiastic, support of 
SWAP.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood again emphasized the concern of the admin- 
istration and the Trustees as to University growth evidenced by the 
placing of this matter on forthcoming Buildings and Grounds and 
Executive Committee agendas on a priority basis. The President's 
Office, he said, hopes to evaluate major trends and forces affecting 
future growth and to report before the first of the year. 

Chancellor Moore reviewed the Master Plan Program which 
has been undertaken by the Board of Higher Education. All aspects 
of planning, coordination, enrollment, and legislation affecting 
public institutions of higher education are being studied, the Chan- 
cellor said. Enrollment projections for the Commonwealth for the 
next decade show an anticipated enrollment of 215,000 for public 
higher education by 1980 — a tripling in the next decade. 

Noting that a large-scale planning effort would seem to be 
indicated, Chancellor Moore also called attention do much work that 
has already been done. He cited the Directions for the '70's Report 



from UM/ Amherst; also the Comprehensive Plan for State and Community 
Colleges which has been completed. 



The Chancellor outlined twelve basic areas selected by the 
BHE for study. He mentioned the many groups now working in an 
advisory capacity on the Master Plan. He expressed hope that coor- 
dination of effort and dovetailing of plans for all segments of pub- 
lic higher education would result in the success of this undertak- 
ing.

All reports are now on file with the Board of Trustees as 
well as with the BBC, the Ways and Means Committee, and the Commis- 
sioner of Administration and Finance. The Board reaffirmed its

shortly. One of the Eastman Lane Residence Halls will be ready for 
the opening of the second semester. Five search committees have

for Student Affairs. The appointment will become effective immedi- 
ately. Dr. Bromery' s appointment has received strong and enthusias- 
tic support from faculty, students, and the administration on the

Chancellor Broderick reported on the status of the 
UM/Boston Governance Proposal. This item has been reviewed by the 
Executive Committee on several occasions. It had previously 
received preliminary approval pending revisions embodied in a memo- 
randum from President Wood to the Chancellor. The revisions are of 
four kinds: (1) to indicate that all procedures covered in the pro- 
posal are subject to review by the Board, (2) to make explicitly 
clear the fact that off -campus candidates for department chairmen 
are not excluded from consideration, (3) to add the proper refer- 
ences to the Dean of the Faculty where appropriate, and (k) to indi- 
cate a mutual understanding that the principle will invariably be 
observed that judgments will not be made on peers or individuals of 
senior rank. 

The student body has voted by a ratio of 12^g to 1 to 
approve the proposal. The faculty has voted approval by a margin of 
2k to 1. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the UM/Boston Governance Proposal as revised 
and as detailed in Document T70-061A.

UM/Worcester Report was presented by Dean Soutter. Major 
problems cited were procurement of federal funds for the hospital 
and difficulties with supervision of construction. 

Applications for the Medical School are up, with about 26 
applicants per place now being received. Fifteen hundred requests 
for application blanks have been received, 750 of which are from 
residents of Massachusetts (an in-state applicant increase of $0%), 

The report of the Executive Committee was presented by 
Chairman Healey. He noted that the Advisory Committee on Honorary 
Degrees, UM/Amherst, had presented an initial report. Plans are

Chairman Pumphret reported for the Finance Committee that 
expenses had been accumulating for UM/Wbrcester due to opening of 
the school o A transfer is now being recommended. The amount 
requested is not an additional budget item but rather a routine

The Report of the Student Activities Committee was given 
by Committee Chairman Rowland. The committee is continuing discus- 
sions begun last year on students' living conditions and life styles 
in UM/Amherst residence halls. At its meeting on November h, the 
committee discussed such things as open house rules, security, and 
student redecorating of residence hall rooms. No votes were taken, 
Chairman Rowland said. Due to rapid expansion of the campus, how- 
ever, she noted that there are resultant security problems and a 
need for increased security manpower. Dr. Bromery was asked to 
comment.

strongly urged to take steps to provide support of continuing edu-

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Report of the Executive Committee was given by Chair- 
man Healey. He said that the recommendations for the final list of 
honorary degree recipients, UE/Amherst, have now been made. He 
particularly stressed the need of all persons concerned to maintain 
complete confidentiality pending release of the list for publication 
next spring. 

The Report of the Finance Committee was made by Committee 
Chairman Pumphret. 

An increase in the Graduate Student Tax is recommended as 
requested by the Graduate Student Senate. The increase is to be 
used largely to support graduate student attendance at professional 
meetings, a newsletter, and for support of a proposed day-care 
center. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize an increase in the Graduate Student Tax 

from $.f?0 per semester to $2.00 per semester, effective 
as of the Spring Semester, 1970-1971. 

Budget Transfers, UM/Amherst, were reviewed by the Commit- 
tee and are being recommended. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize transfer of $109,000 from account 01 to 
account 02. 

Purpose of the Transfer: Overtime requirements in both the 
Security and Physical Plant Departments will clearly exceed the 
overtime approximation. Of the amount for transfer, approxi- 
mately $50,000 is for Security. The remainder is for the 
Physical Plant. 

It was also 

VOTED : To authorize transfer of $519,2^0 from account 01 to 
account 03. 

Purposes of transfers : 

(a) Drug Drop-In Center „ . . . . . . $ 21,000 

For a center working with students on their drug 
problems, including trained counselors and a 
2i|.-hour watch service. 

(b) Security 18,000 

To supplement the security program with student 
and other part-time workers. 

(c) Library 2^,000 

For additional help to maintain library hours 
during the second semester.

(e) Salaries for Summer Session, Fiscal 1971 .... $ 75 , 000 

(f ) Safety Programs $ 12,000 

For the safety inspection of buildings, recharg- 
ing of fire extinguishers, and other safety pro- 
grams conducted by the Department of Environmental 
Health and Safety. 

(g) General support of University programs for the 

second semester ...... ... $278,250 

To be allocated by the Chancellor to schools and 
departments as second semester needs are identi- 
fied. Much of this amount will be used for 
student labor throughout the campus. Thus, these 
funds, needed for support of the academic pro- 
grams, will have the further advantage of making 
it possible for some students in financial 
trouble to remain in school. 

It was also 

VOTED : To authorize transfer of $1+8,200 from account 7l|.ll- 
2000 03 to 71+11-2000 13. 

Purpose of the transfer: The $300,000 special appropriation 
for the Disadvantaged Students Program includes $100,000 in 
account 03 for tutors and $200,000 in account 13 for scholar- 
ships. The University has received a grant from the Department 
of Health, Education, and Welfare, all of which is earmarked 
for salaries and wages. This grant makes it possible to use a 
larger proportion of the state special appropriation for 
scholarship support. The $1+8,200 of scholarships which it is 
proposed to support by this transfer were awarded in the belief 
that the HEW grant would not be restricted to salaries and 
wages. The proposed transfer will not be used to expand the 
Disadvantaged Students Program above existing levels. 

The Syrian Antiochal Church Property, UM/Worcester, has Syrian Antiochal 

been discussed with Dean Soutter. The committee recommends that the Church Property, 

Dean's proposal on this matter be followed. The latest of three UM/Wo re ester 
appraisal figures are to be averaged and an offer made to purchase 
the property for $56,200. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the administration to negotiate further 

for the acquisition of the 6.16 acres of land owned by 
St. George's Syrian Antiochal Church located at the 
corner of Belmont Street and Plantation Street in 
Worcester for use of the Medical School, said negotia- 
tions to be based on the average of the three apprais- 
als of $56,200.

Progress reports for the Amherst and Boston campuses were

this meeting of the Board. 

Acceptance of the preliminary design plans for the Tillson 
Farm Power Plant, UM/Amherst , are recommended as presented by the 
engineering firm of Jackson and Moreland. 

The breakability factor of the translucent acrylic panels 
proposed for the building's exterior are of particular concern to 
Trustee Maginnis. This matter is to have further consideration. 

Discussion was held also on the possibility of providing 
for disposal of solid wastes and pesticides. Studies are being con- 
ducted in these areas. 

Approval of the Preliminary Plans, Infirmary Addition, 
UM/Amherst, is also recommended by the committee. 

Mr. Littlefield mentioned a problem connected with the 
severe limitations of the site which somewhat restricts aesthetic 
design. There will also be some encroachment on the old Rhododen- 
dron Garden. Circulation difficulties within the infirmary are 
anticipated during the construction phase of the addition. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the preliminary plans for the first two 
floors plus service core (Stage I) of the Infirmary 
Addition, UM/Amherst, as presented by the architectural 
firm of Goody and Clancy at a total project cost of 
$1,368,000 based on December 1?69 construction costs 
and subject to the availability of BBC inflationary

Mr. Haigis noted that the Capital Outlay Budget Request 
for Fiscal Year 1972 was voted at the Board of Trustees meeting on 
November 20, 1970, subject to final review by the President's 
Office. 

A final review has been made. Vice President Phillips now Revised Capital 

indicates that the Capital Outlay Request should consist of eleven '' Outlay Request — 

items for the Amherst campus, at $19 s 320,162 instead of the seven Fiscal Tear 1972 

items at $17 3 lU£jl62 voted conditionally by the Trustees on Novem- UM/ Amherst 
ber 20, 1970. 

The entire list of 111 items originally proposed by 
UM/Amherst at a cost of $20,750,162 has been reviewed by the Board. 

After brief further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To increase the Capital Outlay Request items for 

UM/Amherst by four, to include the following: Equip- 
ment, $1,000,000; "Room by Room Renovations," $800,000; 
Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, $300,000; and 
Design of Additional Health Services Facilities 
(Stage II of Infirmary Addition), $75*000, raising the 
total UM/Amherst request to $19,320,162; also, to 
approve the submission of a revised total University 
Capital Outlay Request in the amount of $78,320,162. 

The Report of the Committee on Student Activities was pre- 
sented by Committee Chairman Rowland. 

Mrs. Rowland noted that the meeting had been held on Decern' 
ber 12 at the SWAP Conference. Extensive discussions held there on 
various aspects of student life were essentially a continuation of 
sessions which had begun last year. 

Vice Chancellor Bromery, at Chairman Rowland's request, Security, 
reported on the security situation at UM/Amherst. He cited problems UM/Amherst 
of increased vehicular traffic which provide coverage for two of the 
main security problems : intrusion by outsiders and theft, particu- 
larly from the parking lots. All major universities are facing 
similar problems, the Vice Chancellor said. 

A deficiency budget to provide increased personnel and 
equipment for security purposes has been requested on a priority 
basis. Deterrent factors are being emphasized, and the importance 
of student initiative in planning for better internal security of 
dormitories was also stressed. General discussion followed. 

Chairman Rowland next reported on the committee recommenda- Freshman Partici- 
tion to remove existing restrictions on freshman participation in pation — Coed 
coed residence halls. After careful consideration, she said, the ; Residence Halls, 
committee felt that the exclusion of freshmen was not necessary. UM/Amherst 
Such exclusion has, in fact, led to an excessively heavy concentra- 
tion of freshmen in some residence halls and a resulting loss of con- 
tact between freshmen and upperclassmen

Invited to comment, Vice Chancellor Bromery said that 
there was a logistical problem within some residence halls caused by 
restriction on freshman participation. He also said that the experi- 
ence with coed residence halls was proving to be completely favor- 
able. Security as well as academic performance tend to be better 
than in non-coed residence halls. 

Chancellor Tippo expressed support of the coeducational 
residence hall experience to date, saying that it had been completely 
favorable. 

Mr. Verrochi commented on coeducational dormitory living, 
saying that he lived in Greenough, and that he "loved that dormi- 
tory." Freshmen, he felt, should not be denied a similar experience. 

Trustees Boyden, Knowles, Frechette, Lambs on, and Maginnis 
expressed serious reservations as to the advisability of lifting the 
current restrictions for freshmen. They shared a common feeling that 
the transition from the home environment to campus life was a diffi- 
cult enough adjustment for the entering student to make. 

Dr. Boyden, despite his great confidence in youth from long 
years of involvement with students up to age 21, said that he had 
"serious doubts at this time that freshmen are ready for a coeduca- 
tional living experience." 

Motion was made and seconded to defer action on this ques- 
tion until after the informal gathering of Trustees at Hyannis on 
December 28 and 29. The motion was defeated. 

After further discussion, motion was made and seconded: 
"That part (5) of the vote of the Board at its meeting of April 22, 
L970, excluding freshmen from coeducational residence hall privi- 
leges, be rescinded so that such privileges be extended to members 
of the freshman class effective at the opening of the second semester 
of the academic year 1970-1971* with further details of implementa- 
tion left in the hands of the UM/Amherst administration." The motion 
was defeated. 

Chairman Rowland requested reconsideration of the question 
at the January meeting of the Trustees. 

Proposed Alternate Room Arrangements — Coeducational Dormi- 
tories, UM/Amherst, was next discussed. The Chairman presented a 
revised vote with the approval of the committee. The committee con- 
curs, she said, in recommending exploration of possible alternatives 
to present room arrangements. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To instruct the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, 
UM/Amherst, to report back to the February meeting of 
the Trustee Committee on Student Activities on the 
various kinds of living arrangements possible within 
the existing physical facilities.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Report of the Executive Committee meeting on Janu- 
ary 22 was presented by Trustee Rowland, in the absence of Chairman 
Healey. 

Honorary Degrees, UM/Amherst, had been considered with 
agreement that the process of selection should begin no later than 
May in ensuing years. After extensive discussion, the Committee has 
decided to recommend that no changes be made in the 1971 list as 
previously approved by the Board. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; That the list of honorary degree nominees for 1971, as 
previously approved by the Trustees, be reaffirmed. 

Selective Administrative Merit Increments — 1971, System 
Office, UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, and UM/Worcester, had been reviewed 
very carefully by the Committee. President Wood wishes authoriza- 
tion to determine when these increments go into effect.

After brief discussion, on motion made and seconded, it 

VOTED : That the Recommendations for Selective Administrative 
Merit Increases, System Office, UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, 
UM/Worcester, as detailed in Document T71-061, be 
approved, with the President authorized to determine 
when the increases go into effect. 

A Contract with U.S. Forest Service, UM/Amherst, the first 
of its kind in the nation, had been approved enthusiastically by the 
Committee. The Amherst campus is to be a center for research, with 
particular emphasis on investigating possibilities for "green belts," 
parks, etc., within a predominately urban environment. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED : That a research contract with the U.S. Forest Service 
(Document T71-072 ) be approved. 

Delegation of Certain Administrative Powers had been dis- 
cussed by the Executive Committee. University Counsel Broadhurst is 
preparing for Trustee consideration a draft of formal delegation of 
certain administrative powers to the President with appropriate 
caveats limiting redelegation of such powers at other administrative 
levels . 

Specific delegation is recommended at the present time to 
authorize Vice Chancellor Hamilton to sign the- contract for total 
electric energy at Columbia Point with the Boston Edison Company. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize Vice Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, on 

behalf of the Board of Trustees, to sign the "Agreement 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

for Electric Service" for the University of Massachu- 
setts — Boston Campus at Columbia Point. 

It was further 

VOTED: To authorize Vice Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, on 

behalf of the Board of Trustees to sign the "Agreement 
between University of Massachusetts/Boston and the 
Service Employees International Union, Local 576 AFL- 
CIO." 

President Wood noted that Chairman Healey had not partici- 
pated in this decision and that, had he been present, he would not 
have participated in the vote. 

Trustee Haigis stated, in connection with delegation of 
administrative powers, that both he and Vice President Phillips had 
emphasized at the Executive Committee meeting that there would be no 
abrogation of the decision-making power or of the responsibilities of 
the Board of Trustees under the delegation of powers as proposed. 

The . Report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy was presented by Committee Chairman Troy. At the meeting held 



3449 



1-29-71 



on January 20, the Chairman had proposed a review, to take place dur- 
ing this academic year, of current academic programs and policies at 
UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. Specific areas to be covered include: 

(1) Graduate School — focusing on the subject, "Is the present 
contraction of the market for Ph.D. 's seriously affecting our gradu- 
ate school admission policy, and other Graduate School policies? 
What are the Graduate School standards? How will this change affect 
the size and shape of the Graduate School in the coming decade?" 
Chairman Troy said that he would also like to have Dean Appley dis- 
cuss anything else he felt the Board should know about. Of particu- 
lar interest to the Trustees, he said, will be an evaluation of the 

programs put through "in the great and expansive rush of the six- 
ties." 

(2) What is the admissions policy at UM/Boston? The Chairman 
recalled that UM/Amherst Dean of Admissions Tunis had given a report 
on Amherst admissions policies three or four years ago. We would 
like, he said, to have a similar report for Boston. What kind of 
students are we getting at Boston? How do their achievement and 
test records as they enter the University compare with those at 
Amherst and comparable institutions? He and Dr. Abrams, Chairman 
Troy said, had each raised the same question at Hyannis. Is the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Boston following the 
general plan of the California System, for example? 

(3) What is the status of the Pass -Fail system at Amherst and 
Boston ? How widely is it employed? Is it being currently evaluated? 
What is student and faculty response? What is its likely future?

(k) What is the attrition rate at Amherst and Boston, espe- 
cially in the first two years; with particular emphasis on the first 
year? How is academic failure determined at Amherst and Boston? 
What do you have to do to "flunk out"? Could we have a report on 
the policy change of a few years ago to raise the standard of 
achievement for graduation at UM/Amherst from 1.8 to 2.0? How much 
student laziness and carelessness exists? Even if with a minority 
of students, this is "a drag on the University." 

(5) What is the teaching load of our faculty at the various 
levels and how is it determined ; by departments, by schools, or 
colleges or by the administration? Is the faculty happy with the 
load? 

Mr. Troy made it clear that the Trustees had no wish to 
interfere in areas traditionally reserved for the faculty and 
administration but he felt that a redefinition of current practices 
and an accurate description of these practices "might illuminate a 
situation or stimulate a desire for reform if reform is needed." 

(6) Evaluation of the scope and current success of the Programs 
for Disadvantaged Students at UM/Amherst and UM/Bostoru How are 
these programs handled? What are the recommendations to modify or 
improve them? How many persons are currently involved in tutoring 
and/or counseling? 

President Wood indicated that he felt that the areas 
listed by Chairman Troy for the committee's study were completely 
appropriate areas of inquiry. He had also liked, he said, Trustee 
Lambson's suggestion as to a series of "white papers" to be pre- 
sented periodically to the Trustees for informational purposes. 

Sabbatical Leave Recommendations, UM/Amherst and UM/Boston 



had been reviewed by the Committee. The established policies on 
sabbatical leaves have been carefully followed in all cases. A 
detailed analysis of all UM/Amherst sabbatical requests for 1971 had 
been distributed by Provost Gluckstern. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Sabbatical Leave Recommendations for UM/ 

Amherst for 1971-72 as submitted by the Provost and as 
detailed in Document T71-067 be approved. 

It was also 

VOTED: That the Sabbatical Leave Recommendations for 1971-72 
for UM/Boston as submitted by the Dean of Faculty and 
as detailed in Document T71-068 be approved. 

Promotions, UM/Amherst and UM/Boston, had also been con- 
sidered. There had been some discussion, the Chairman said, on the 
term "automatic promotions." This situation would arise when the 
promotion of an instructor to assistant professor is "contingent

upon the attainment of the Ph.D„" Nothing should be this automatic, 
Chairman Troy said, and there had been agreement not to use this 
term in the future 



After further discussion, and on motion made and seconded, 



it was 

VOTED: 



That the recommendations for Promotions as submitted by 
UM/Amherst and as detailed in Document T 71-06 9 be 
approved. 



3451 



1-29-71 



It was also 

VOTED : That the recommendations for Promotions as submitted by 
UM/Boston, and as detailed in Document T71-070, be 
approved. 

Selective Academic Merit Increments — 1971, UM/Amherst, 
UM/Boston, and UM/Worcester, had been reviewed very carefully by the 
committee. The guidelines used in determining these increments had 
been detailed by the Chancellors and Dean Soutter as well as by 
Associate Provost Gluckstern and Dean HoopeSo The committee was 
satisfied, Chairman Troy said, that the complex evaluation procedures 
involved had been applied as objectively as possible for all cam- 
puses. Approval was recommended. 

President Wood requested that the vote include the caveat: 
"with the President authorized to determine when the increases go 
into effect." The intent of this proviso, the President said, would 
be simply to provide for an administrative review. "In terms of the 
present timing and situation I want to assure myself of comparability 
across campuses in particular cases (speaking primarily of the admin 
istrative side) and also of appropriate flexibility and timing in 
terms of the present fiscal impact." 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Recommendations for Selective Academic Merit 
Increments, as submitted by UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, and 
UM/Worcester and as detailed in Document T71-061 be 
approved, with the President authorized to determine 
when the increases go into effect. 

The Appointment of Dr. Donald Tipper as Professor and 
Chairman of the Department of Microbiology, UM/Worcester, is recom- 
mended by the Committee. Dean Saunders had provided details of Dr. 



Tipper's training and experience which are expected to prove invalu- 
able to the Medical School. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was then 

VOTED : That the appointment of Dr. Donald Tipper as Professor 
and Chairman of the Department of Microbiology in the 
Medical School, UM/Worcester, be approved, effective 
July 1, 1971.

Private Fund Raising, University System, had been discussed 
with the Committee by Vice President Lashman. He had presented 
detailed reports on various aspects of fund raising at other insti- 
tutions and had recommended that a feasibility study be done by a 
fund-raising counsel firm at the earliest possible date. The com- 
mittee concurs unanimously, Chairman Pumphret said, in this recom- 
mendation. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: That the President be authorized, in consultation with 
the Committee on Finance, to engage appropriate counsel 
to complete a study of private fund raising for the 
University System, with the proviso that subsequent 
regular use of counsel is subject to further review by 
the Committee on Finance prior to entering into a con- 
tract for such services.

The Personnel Protection Policy, UM/System, has had. exten- 
sive study and review by the Finance Committee. Renewal of the 
existing contract is recommended with the understanding that the 
contract will be subject to an early review before the next renewal- 
date. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Personnel Protection Policy be awarded for 

1971 to the Francis P. Lyons Agency at a sole bid pre- 
mium of $15,325.66, with the proviso that any subse- 
quent contracts be negotiated at an earlier date prior 
to the annual date of expiration of the policy. 

Transfer of Funds, Medical School, UM/Worcester, is being 
recommended by the Committee. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To transfer between subsidiary accounts, Medical 
School, UM/Worcester: 

from 01 to 02 $ 3,000 

from 01 to 03 ..... o ... . $126,000 

Reduction of Physical Education Fee for Stockbridge School 
Students, UM/Amherst, is also recommended by the Committee. Chancel 
lor Tippo has observed that Stockbridge School students are now 
assessed the same $20.00 fee as four-year students when they enter 
the University. It is felt that reduction of this fee to $10.00 
would represent a more equitable assessment. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the physical education fee charged Stockbridge 
School students, UM/Amherst, be reduced to $10.00, 
effective September 1971 o 

Transfer of Funds from the Amherst Trust Fund Interest 
Account to the Receiving Tellers Petty Cash Fund, UM/Amherst, for

The Report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds m eet- 
ing of January 15 was presented by Committee Chairman Haigis. 

Additional Residence Halls, 1972, UM/Amherst, has been 
discussed at length by the Committee and Mr. Littlefield A feasi- 
bility study was requested for a program which would provide housing 
for 600 single students in small, £0-student-capacity residence 
halls by the fall of 1972. This program would be both experimental 
and flexible. Its. small size would permit possible completion 
within an 18-month period while future long-range housing needs are 
studied in greater detail. The program would also be compatible with 
a planned, gradual deceleration of the rate of growth at UM/Amherst. 

After discussion, in which it was pointed out that the 
statutes require that the University Building Authority act only 
upon request to initiate a project, and on motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : That Joseph P. Healey, Chairman of the Board of Trustees 
of the University of Massachusetts, and Robert C. Wood, 
President of the University of Massachusetts, be and 
each acting alone hereby is authorized in the name and 
behalf of the Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts to make a written request pursuant to 
Chapter 773 of the Acts of I960 of The Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, as amended, to University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority that said Authority initiate a 
project to consist of the planning and construction by 
said Authority of a building or buildings at the Univer-' 
sity of Massachusetts — Amherst to house approximately 
600 students for use by the University, its students 
and staff and their dependents; and that said project It 
hereby determined to be designed primarily to provide 
facilities for the housing of such students, staff and 
their dependents, including those uses referred to in 
Section 3 of said Chapter 773 as amended. 

A Change in Architectural Plans — Phase II — Graduate 
Research Center, UM/Amherst, was considered by the Committee and is 
now being recommended. A change in fenestration has been proposed 
which would reflect the use of the remaining two towers as primarily 
classroom and office space. This will also harmonize with the

TOTED : To approve a change in fenestration for Phase II, Gradu-

Approval to proceed with further Land Acquisition,

City of Worcester has offered to turn over to the Medical School cer-

pletely happy with the presentation made by the engineering firm 
involved. Conceding that the report was probably excellent from an 
engineering standpoint, Mr. Haigis added that it was not entirely 
acceptable in an aesthetic sense. Committee members also had reser- 
vations about the amount of storm damage protection afforded by the 
plans as well as concern over general safeguards for the public at 
the site. 

Chairman Haigis assured the Board that the Committee would 
"look long and hard" into all possibilities in connection with the 
dike which is, he said, "the cornerstone of all construction at 
Columbia Point." Chancellor Broderick stated that the UM/Boston 
administration would not present formal recommendations for the dike 
and the roadway to the Trustees until they were more satisfied with 
the plans than is currently the case. 

Personnel Actions were next presented for approval by 
President Wood. These have received careful consideration, and their 
approval is recommended, subject to review of administrative merit 
recommendations by President Wood. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions as 

detailed in Document T 71-065 and Supplement T71-06f?#l 
subject to review of administrative merit recommenda- 
tions by President Wood who will determine the date on 
which said recommendations will be placed into effect.

tive on and after January 31* 1971* as detailed in 
Document T 71-066, which documents are herewith attached 
to and made a part of these minutes . 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to or repealed by the Board of 
Trustees with respect to professional personnel under 
provisions of Chapter 75> of the General Laws as amended 
by Chapter 61|8, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specification for each posi- 
tion to which a member of the professional staff is 
hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, or determined 
shall be as hereafter determined by the Board of 
Trustees or under their authority. 

Chancellor Tippo noted that several outstanding appoint- 
ments were being made at UM/Amherst. President Wood congratulated 
the Chancellor on the quality of those appointments in recognition 
of the great progress he is making in attracting faculty of unusual 
caliber and attainment. 

Chancellor Tippo cited the retiring Associate Dean of the 
College of Agriculture, and Director of the Stockbridge School, 
Fred P. Jeffrey. Dean Jeffrey, the Chancellor said, has done an 
outstanding job as Director of the School for 17 years, and as a 
member of the faculty for 27 years. 

Upon motion presented by Trustee Lambson, and seconded by 
Trustee Chandler, it was 

VOTED : That the Secretary prepare an appropriate citation 

expressing the appreciation of the Board of Trustees to 
retiring Dean Jeffrey of the College of Agriculture and 
the Stockbridge School in recognition of his long and 
dedicated service to the University. 

The Report of the University Building Authority was pre- 
sented by Chairman Pumphret. On advice of investment counsel, Chair 
man Pumphret said, the Authority is planning to convert some short- 
term notes to long-term investments. A report on this matter will 
be presented at the next meeting of the Board of Trustees. 

The Report of the Delegate to the Board of Higher Educa- 
tion was given by Dr. Lyons. He noted that the Trustees had before 
them the staff report of the BHE on the question of tuition. On 
February 16, the BHE plans to hold a special evening meeting to hear 
progress reports on the Master Plan for Higher Education begun by 
BHE Chancellor Moore last summer.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At the last meeting of the BHE, Dr Lyons said, a new 
chairman was elected, to replace Mr. Dakin who was the Board's "first 
and only" Chairman,, Mr. Dakin had refused to accept renewal of his 
appointment, in spite of the urging of Board members. Mrs. Ullian 
has now been elected to that office. She is an economist, a gradu- 
ate of Radcliffe, and a former member of the Radcliff e faculty. As 
one of the- Board's first, and "hardest working" members, she has 
been concerned primarily with budget affairs, Dr. Lyons said. 

The BHE sent a delegation to a meeting on the new Secre- 
tary of Education. There has not yet been a report from this meet- 
ingo Dr. Lyons stated that the position of the BHE is that the new 
Secretary should not be a professional educator, but rather a civic 
leader with administrative ability. 

Secretary McCartney reminded the Trustees that the Febru- 
ary meeting is the Annual Meeting of the Board. The Nominating 
Committee will then be making committee assignments for the year as 
well as nominating officers along with the Board's delegate to the 
Board of Higher Education. He urged all Trustees to return their 
committee preference forms to Dennis Crowley, Chairman of the 
Nominating Committee, at the earliest possible date. The Committee 
will be meeting in mid-February. 

President Wood expressed regret in announcing the resig- 
nation from the Board of Trustee Lyons. Despite the urging of all 
members of the Board to continue and assurance of reappointment, Dr. 
Lyons will permit his term of office to expire on February 22, just 
prior to the next full Board meeting of the Trustees. Terming this 
announcement a "sad duty," President Wood said, "This is a very 
great loss to us all." The President then read a formal testimonial 
of appreciation for Dr. Lyons' service, given by the Board of Trus- 
tees. He presented the leather-bound text to Dr Lyons. 

In response, Dr. Lyons expressed appreciation for "the 
flowery words," saying that "this is a wonderful 'obituary' which I 
trust will be placed on file." "All projections show," he said, 
"that the 'impossible' numbers of students and the 'impossible' 
amounts of money needed for higher education have a target date of 
1980. I thought it would be technically very desirable for me to 
take a sabbatical until that date." 

Dr. Lyons was accorded a standing ovation from the mem- 
bers of the Board of Trustees together with all persons present. 



The meeting was adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pres- 
ent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
called to order by Chairman Healey at 2:10 p.m. 

The minutes of the meeting of February 2l|, 1971, were pre- 
sented for approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the meeting of the Board of 
Trustees held on February 2lj., 1971. 

The Report of the Committee on Student Activities was 
heard first, out of the regular agenda order. Chairman Rowland 
reviewed deliberations over the past year and a half on questions of 
student life and living arrangements at UM/Amherst, centering, dur- 
ing the past few months, on such arrangements at Orchard Hill. The 
committee has attempted to look at the student living experience in 
the broadest possible way. Vice Chancellor Bromery's Report: Resi- 
dence Halls as Living-Learning Centers has been sent to all Trus- 
tees, along with President Wood's memorandum on the report. A pro- 
posed motion, as unanimously approved by the committee, was then 
read. 

Chairman Healey called for discussion. He personally 
supported the recommendation as a step in the direction of the Board 
determining broad policies, with resultant operating procedures 
being carried out by the administration. He expressed confidence in

the ability of the administration to carry out Board policies, but 
asked that the Trustees be kept fully informed, not only prior to 
policy implementation, but also with reports of progress and results, 
Mr. Healey called for campuswide cooperation and assumption of 
responsibility by students "if we are to operate with a new set of 
rules." 

General Maginnis said he had voted against a similar motion 
at the December meeting and saw no reason now to change his vote. 

President Wood said his supporting views were set forth in 
his memo to the Trustees. He gave assurance that his office would 
relay detailed progress reports from the Amherst campus as the pro- 
gram is implemented. 

Vice Chancellor Bromery assured the Board that' he would 
keep the Trustees fully informed of any changes developing from these 
policies prior to placing them into effect. 



After further discussion, and on motion made and seconded, 



it was 



VOTED : To authorize the development of academic and social pro- 
grams in the residence halls and to encourage student 
participation in dormitory governance, formulation of 
academic and social program policies, and the develop- 
ment of management and residence hall program budgets ; 

Further, to authorize the Chancellor of the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst to approve these academic 
and social programs as recommended by the Vice Chancel- 
lors including all undergraduate and graduate student 
living arrangements designed to enhance these academic 
and social programs ; 

Further, to request that the Vice Chancellors from time 
to time make written reports concerning the developmen- 
tal stages of the academic and social program implementa 
tion to the Board of Trustees through the Chancellor of 
the Amherst campus and the President of the University 
of Massachusetts; 

Further, that the Board of Trustees is on record as 
strongly encouraging the faculty of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst to cooperate and participate in 
the development of the residence halls as living-learn- 
ing centers in concert with the students and the student 
affairs staff ; 

And finally, that the Board of Trustees recognizes the 
benefits of and encourages variety in the development of 
housing opportunities with the concurrent academic and 
social programs as mentioned above. Implementation to 
be the responsibility of the Administration on the

Amherst campus through the Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs within the following guidelines established by 
the Board of Trustees for coeducational living: (l)

President Wood reported that the Trustees will shortly 
receive from Secretary McCartney the Report of the HEW Task Force on 
the Management of Universities and on New and Unconventional 



Approaches * This report, issued within the past two weeks, is

regarded as an extraordinary provocative document, particularly in 
respect to the management of multi-campus universities. 

The Committee on the Future University, under the chairman- 
ship of Vernon Alden, has held two meetings subsequent to its organi- 
zational get-together. The last meeting was held at Amherst. Dr. 
Wood is impressed with attendance at these meetings by members serv- 
ing without compensation and coming from long distances, and by the 
comments and substance of the meetings. The Amherst meeting was par 1 
ticularly encouraging. The committee remains committed to evalua- 
tion, recommendation, and comment. The President hopes, however, 
that it will eventually give advice and counsel to the Board of 
Trustees as they carry out their responsibilities. 

The President also noted hearings now under way in Washing' 
ton with regard to federal assistance to universities and colleges, 
both public and private. The central issue is between federally 
guaranteed loans to students or federal assistance grants as institu 
tional aid. These issues are inevitably related to tuition and sup- 
port at the state level. The President will report periodically to 
the Board on progress of the hearings. 

Chancellor Tippo, reporting for UM/Amherst, noted that the 
Theatre Group production of Aristophanes "The Clouds" has been 
selected by the American College Theatre Festival as one of the ten 
outstanding college theatre productions of the year. The group will 
give two evening performances in Washington on April 3 and ij.. The 
unusual nature of this honor is indicated by the fact that selection 
was made from 2I4.O college theatre productions from all over the 
country. 

Vice President Phillips requested formalization of action 
discussed at the November meeting of the Board: approval of the 
UM/Boston Library book request of $300,000. 

It was, therefore, moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve an additional budget submission for library 
books in the amount of $300,000 for UM/Boston.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Committee Chairman Troy reported for the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy , 



The Chairman first presented the highlights of the Gradu - 
ate School Report given by Dean Appley at the meeting of February 17 
The Dean had stressed the very real progress made at, the graduate 
level during the past decade, and has reviewed the entire history 
of the School since. its inception in 18 98. Advance has been quali- 
tative and not merely quantitative. Now offered are kh Ph.D. pro- 
grams, one Ed.D., and 63 Master's programs. The ACE Report, which 
evaluates graduate school programs by departments, noted the very 
significant progress made at the UM Graduate School over the past 
five years. This growing reputation for excellence has almost cer- 
tainly contributed to the growing number of applications for the 
Graduate School. More than 17,000 requests for application forms 
have been received for the current year; around 12,000 formal appli- 
cations are expected out of this number of requests. Some k0% of 
applications are accepted and, of these, about UO% actually enroll. 
Dean Appley noted the complexity of handling this very large volume 
of correspondence. He emphasized that additional state-funded posi- 
tions are desperately needed in order to expedite this process. 

The ability of the Graduate School to draw first-rate 
graduate students depends largely on the amount of financial support 
and scholarship funds offered. Currently there is a serious decline 
in this support. In 1969 the University received 181). federal fel- 
lowships 3 in 1970, 16U5 in 1971, 122; and in 1972, 93. There is 
fear that this support will be entirely phased out by 197h<- This 
represents a loss of $300,000 in direct fellowship support- but it 
also involves the loss of an additional $2^0,000 in indirect sup- 
port through co st-of -education allowances. The latter amount has 
been used for University fellowships in the past; there are Sk of 
these this year. Fellowships must be cut drastically next year 
unless additional funds can be found. It was stressed that every 
effort must be made to obtain state support as the most able stu- 
dents are involved, and the presence of these students is necessary 
if the highest -quality graduate education is to be maintained. 

Chairman Troy noted that schools and departments have a 
good deal of autonomy and that an effective balance seems to have 
been established. between the Dean and the Graduate Council, on one 
hand, and the departments and schools, on the other. 

The question of growth of the Graduate School has been 
discussed by the committee. The Chairman reviewed the rough esti- 
mates of growth used in the past, which projected a figure of 20,000 
for undergraduate enrollment and 10,000 for the Graduate School. 
These figures have now been superceded by a total growth figure of 
25,000 for the Amherst campus. However, Dean Appley regards the 
10,000 figure for the Graduate School, not as a target figure, but 
as at best only a maximum possibility. 

The committee had discussed the current oversupply of 
Ph.D.s reported widely in the press and in the Chronicle of Higher 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Education. The view that graduate schools should not continue their 



present rate of expansion has been challenged in many quarters, 
including the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education. Dean Appley 
feels , in this regard, that the demand for Ph.D.s is highly selec- 
tive, and that there will be increasing demand for doctorates at the 
community and state college levels. 

The committee felt that growth of the Graduate School 
should be a matter of continuing study and evaluation and that the 
school should give a good deal of attention to the rate at which it 
continues to expand. It was noted that there will be a need for many 
fewer programs in the '70's. The Dean does not foresee more than six 
new programs being established during this period. 

The committee was greatly impressed with Graduate School 
progress, especially with the quality of the programs and their rela^ 
tively early recognition of excellence throughout the academic world. 

Noting that UM/Boston would be moving into graduate studies 
when the campus is established at Columbia Point, Chairman Troy 
remarked that it seemed inevitable that UM/Boston graduate develop- 
ment should be coordinated with growth of graduate studies at 
UM/Amherst. 

Chancellor Broderick registered for the record "formal dis 
sent from some of Dean Appley's predictions about the development of 
graduate studies at UM/Boston." Chairman Troy clarified that he, 
not Dean Appley, had commented on possible coordination of graduate 
programs. 

Chairman Healey, discussing the 2^,000 growth figure for 
the Amherst campus, said this figure represented the total planned 
growth there, with division as to graduate and undergraduate numbers 
and graduate growth at UM/Boston still to be determined. 

President Wood said the administration has been operating 
since the Hyannis meeting on a planning figure of 25,000 for 
UM/Amherstj and then a reallocation of students in terms of general 
target figures of the BHE among the other two campuses. The feas- 
ibility study now under way for UM/Worcester development is to be 
reported on next month. 

Reporting next on the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy meeting held on March 15>, Chairman Troy first noted that the 
name of Professor Nevin Weaver had inadvertently been omitted from 
the UM/Boston list of faculty proposed for increments. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve a merit increment of $1,5>00 for Professor 
Nevin Weaver, UM/Boston, effective retroactively to 
February 1, 1971.

UM/Boston-- 
Admissions 
Report, 
Doc. T71-083 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The question of the committee's policy on reviewing new 
appointments had been raised at the meeting. Customary procedure 
involves committee review only of top academic and professional 
appointments. Promising and unique appointments are always of 
special interest to the committee. 

Dean Hoopes announced the appointment of Professor Bates 
Lowry as Professor and Chairman of the Department of Art, UM/Boston. 
Dr. Lowry has a distinguished record as a faculty member at the 
Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; also at the University 
of California at Riverside, and as head of the art department at 
Brown University. The rescue of Italian -art after the 1 Q 66 floods 
in Florence was organized under Dr. Lowry' s leadership. He has 
served as Director of the Museum of Modern Art and is currently a 
member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University. 

Chairman Troy reported that Dean Soutter has announced 
five new appointments to the faculty of the Medical School, only one 
of which is on a salaried basis. The Dean was complimented on his 
ability to attract outstanding members of the medical profession to 
the teaching staff of the Medical School on a voluntary basis. 

Chairman Troy requested that, in the future, any reports 
to be considered by Trustee committees be forwarded to the Secretary 
in time for distribution to Trustees at least a week before any 
scheduled meeting. This will allow committees ample time to read 
reports and would, he felt, make for more effective discussion. 

Chairman Troy next reviewed the Admissions Report, 
UM/Boston, as it had been presented by Director of Admissions Donald 
Costello. Mr. Costello had traced the historical development of the 
Boston Admissions Office for its first sis years of operation, from 
1965 to 1970. 

Procedures have evolved from a branch operation of the 
Amherst Admissions Office to a completely independent process. The 
office staff, in addition to the Director, now includes two 
assistants and sis secretaries. The office works closely with, and 
under the counsel and guidance of, a faculty advisory committee on 
admissions under the chairmanship of Professor Nevin Weaver. This 
committee, the Chancellor noted, is one of the most active and 
effective of the faculty committees. 

The committee adopted, in February 1966, the following 
general policy: all students who are in the top third of their high 
school class, or who have attained a combined score of 1000 on SATs, 
with a £00 verbal score, shall be admitted to UM/Boston. Until 
further notice, students not meeting these standards will not be 
admitted. 

As UM/Boston has become better known, the number of appli- 
cations has risen steadily. This year, for example, there are 
approximately 1,000 more applications than last year. There is, 
Chairman Troy said, every indication that this larger demand for the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

limited, number of spaces available at UM/Boston will increase 
steadily, and that it will allow for selective admissions from a 
large pool of highly qualified students. 

There are three components used in the selection process: 
(l) rank in high school class, (2) SAT and other test scores, and 
(3) predicted grade average. Mr. Costello had said that the rank in 
class was the most reliable of these criteria. 

Mr. Costello had also noted that increasing numbers of 
students admitted are coming from the higher ranks of their high 
school classes. In 1969, 23% of those admitted were in the first 
1$% of their class; in 1970, 33% were in this category; and in 1971, 
this figure rose to k7%» 

Chancellor Broderick noted that older students who cannot 
meet conventional entrance requirements are potentially good risks 
for admission. If past record of achievement is poor, admission can 
be based on recommendation, personal interview, and subsequent per- 
formance. A trial semester is spent as a "special student"; some 
fifty students per year are in this category. 

In response to a question as to how well UM/Boston is 
known, the Chancellor had replied that UM/Boston is becoming much 
more widely known than in the early years, and that it is known for 
certain things: (l) a quality program, (2) outstanding faculty, and 
(3) reasonably small classes. Students are transferring in increas- 
ing numbers from private institutions „ 

Regarding geographic distribution of the student body, Mr. 
Costello said that about U.0% come from within the City of Boston and 
the remaining 60% from the surrounding areas. Although it was estab- 
lished rather early, he said, that students from within the city 
would be given admissions preference, it has never been necessary to 
enforce this policy, "it has simply worked out naturally " 

The committee had discussed the question of whether Boston 
students should be given admissions preference, the Chairman said. 
The consensus was that the most able students should be admitted, 
from anywhere in the state, "on the basis that a good faculty 
deserves the best students o" 

Mr. Costello had also briefly reviewed the Disadvantaged 
Students Program. This was established in 1965 with 25 students,, In 
1971, 11$ of the entering class were in this program. The program, 
under the leadership of Mrs. Crawford, maintains a close alliance 
with the Admissions Office. 

In closing this informational report, Chairman Troy noted 
the substantial progress made at UM/Boston over the past sis years. 
This progress, he said, should be reflected more and more clearly in 
the type and quality of students who seek admission.

No report for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds was 
given, in the absence of the Chairman. It was noted that the 
minutes of the meeting were available to the press and that the 
meeting had been devoted to progress reports for the three campuses. 
No votes had been taken. 

Personnel Actions were presented for approval by President 
Wood. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions as 

detailed in Document T71-082, which document is here- 
with attached to and made a part of these minutes. 

It was also 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Presidential Appointments 
Without Tenure for the period February 25, 1971, to 
March 2k, 1971, as detailed in Document T71-082A, which 
document is herewith attached to and made a part of 
these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to or repealed by the Board of 
Trustees with respect to professional personnel under 
provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended 
by Chapter 61±8, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specification for each posi- 
tion to which a member of the professional staff is 
hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, or determined 
shall be as hereafter determined by the Board of 
Trustees or under their authority. 

President Wood introduced to the meeting the first two 
interns to be appointed in the President's Office: Miss Elizabeth 
Pugh of UM/Amherst and Mr. James Triplett of UM/Boston. Miss Pugh 
and Mr. Triplett will have various duties assigned, some in connec- 
tion with Trustee meetings. 

The University of Massachusetts Building Authority had no 
formal report. Chairman Healey, however, reported on bonds having 
received a relatively favorable rate. 

Dean Appley, referring to page three of the minutes of the 
meeting of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, March 18, 1971, 
wished to record an objection. The subject of Marine Science pro- 
grams, he said, had not been discussed with his office. He felt 
that a need for further communication on this issue was indicated. 






UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Healey expressed appreciation on behalf of the 
Board of Trustees to Mr. Norman MacLeod for his service on the Board 
during his term of office. 

The Chairman also noted that today's meeting marked the 
last for Clenn Elters as student representative to the Board. Mr. 
Elters, he said, has not only represented his constituency (the 
student body), but has also served in terms of his broad obligation 
as representative of the entire Commonwealth and its interest in the 
University. "He has carried out these broad-gauged responsibilities 
in an outstanding manner, " Mr. Healey said. 

The meeting was adjourned at 2 :j?0 p.m.

been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pres- 
ent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
called to order by Chairman Healey at 2:10 p.m. 

The minutes of the meeting of March 21;, 1971* were pre- 
sented for approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the Board of 
Trustees held on March 2k, 1971« 

President Wood commented on three items of particular 
note. Regarding the tenure cases being presented to the Board for 
action today, these have been subject to extensive review adminis- 
tratively on each campus, by the President's Office and by the Com- 
mittee on Faculty and Educational Policy. The President under- 
scored the point that a heavy degree of teaching capability is 
represented by this faculty group, and that considerable, and desir- 
able, emphasis has been placed on the individual teaching record at 
all stages of departmental review. 

Reporting on the administrative decision made two months 
ago, that the University would undertake the task of providing 
employment assistance for engineering, scientific and professional 
manpower, the President noted that a group has been organized by 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dean Picha in the School of Engineering to assist in this effort 
and that joint meetings are scheduled to work out plans. 

The President noted with pleasure that Attorney General 
Quinn has set up a Task Force to investigate the feasibility and 
desirability of establishment of a University Law School. He 
recalled that a Faculty Senate Committee, UM/Amherst, had reported 
five years ago on the possible establishment of a law school at the 
University of Massachusetts. This report had received very serious 
consideration at the time. The Attorney General, acting at Presi- 
dent Wood's request and in cooperation with the Alden committee, has 
taken the lead in organization of this new. group which is planning 
to work on this problem throughout the summer. 

Dean Soutter, reporting for the Medical School, noted that 
next year's entering class of 2k is full and that one -third of this 
number is female. This is the largest proportion of female students 
in any medical school class in the country, except for the Women's 
Medical College in Philadelphia. The faculty at the Medical School 
now numbers 5>1, with only 11 of this number salaried^ the remainder 
volunteer their services. 

Chancellor Broderick, reporting for UM/Boston, recalled 
that the Master Plan for Columbia Point authorizes the creation of 
six colleges of approximately 2, £00 students each. Two of these 
colleges are now being developed, and development of the third will 
begin next year. Restructuring of University governance procedures 
and curriculum is now in process, with the present system of gov- 
ernance serving as an interim guide as the various colleges are 
established. 

A search is under way for deans for the first two colleges] 
these colleges will become functioning legal entities as soon as 
their status, deans and curriculum have been approved by the Board. 
Another dean is also being sought for the third college although a 
later opening date is anticipated in this case. The concept of the 
third college is directed toward public and community service, the 
actual format of which is under study and will be presented to the 
Board for approval when in final form. The first two colleges to be 
established will have a liberal arts orientation. 

To head up this structure of growing complexity, recommen- 
dation is being made on the appointment of a distinguished Dean of 
Faculties and Provost who will be the senior academic officer for the 
Boston campus. • ■ 

The Report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy meeting of April 16 was next presented by Committee Chairman 
Troy. 

A Master of Public Administration Degree, UM/Amherst, was 
discussed by the committee. This program has been approved by appro- 
priate committees, as well as by an outside reviewing board and has 
developed out of an awareness of the need for training of public

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A Proposal for an Institute for Man and His Environment 
was presented, by Vice Chancellor Gluckstern. This program has been 
under consideration by the faculty for the past two years and 
reflects concern felt for the need for interdisciplinary work 
related to environmental problems of our society. The program will 
be administered by the Provost's Office and will be headed by a 
Director and an Associate Director. There will also be an Advisory 
Committee. The program will be carefully analyzed and evaluated 
after the first two years ; recommendations as to its future will then

Chairman Healey presented the Report of the Executive Com- 



The Cos t-of -Living Increase of 6 percent for all state

Acts of 1971 and was subsequently approved for the University by the 
Executive Committee on April 7, 1971. It is now before the full 
Board for ratification. All employees paid from various Trust Fund 
categories who are equivalent to state-funded employees will receive 
the increase. Employees paid from 03 funds are not, however, 
included. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : In accordance with the provisions of Section II4. of 

Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended, and the pro- 
visions of Chapter 116 of the Acts of 1971 and the 
authority contained therein and all other acts applic-

those paid from institute, grant or contract funds the 
recommendation and certification of the availability of 
funds by the cognizant principal investigator or 
director shall be a prerequisite to the payment of any 
such increase. . 

The Affiliation Agreement with Hospitals, UM/tforcester, was 
discussed by Dean Soutter, at Chairman Healey's invitation. He 
described the form of agreement being presented, and said that it is 
acceptable to all of the hospitals involved. It is essentially a 
partnership, guaranteeing that the hospital can carry out its commun- 
ity commitments for patient care while at the same time the Medical 
School carries out its program of education for medical students. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the basic Affiliation Agreement, UM/Medical School, 
and Worcester Hospitals, as detailed in Document 
T71-085, be approved. 

At the meeting of the Executive Committee held just prior 
to this meeting of the Board, Treasurer Johnson requested that 
arrangements be made to provide another signatory for the University

contracts and vouchers, including checks, drafts, certi- 
ficates of deposit, letters of credit, advances from the 
State Treasurer and withdrawal orders, as require the 
signature of the financial officer of the University 
provided that all checks, drafts, certificates of 
deposit, letters of credit and withdrawal orders in an 
amount of $10,000 or more shall require the additional 
signature of either the Treasurer of the University or 
the Associate Treasurer. 

Chairman Pumphret next presented the Report of the Commit- 
tee on Finance for its meeting of April 13. 

Murray D. Lincoln Estate Holdings were discussed. It was 
agreed that the proposals outlined by Mr. Thornbury, Trustee of the 
Estate, would be followed for liquidation of a portion of the 
holdings. Other securities will now be turned over to the Univer- 
sity for management. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was

for financial aid for disadvantaged students. 

It was also 

VOTED ; To approve transfer of $16,296.67 from the Trust Fund 
Interest — Reserve to Trust Fund Interest — Legal Fees. 

It was noted by Trustee Pumphret that additional discre- 
tionary funds were necessary for the President's Office to meet 
expenses for the balance of the year. Recommendation is through 
Executive Committee action. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve transfer of $5,000 from the Trust Fund 
Interest Account-Reserve to the Associate Alumni

Termination of Leases — Lincoln and University Apartments, 
UM/Amherst, is necessary at this time as the final legal step in 
implementation of new policies which limit occupancy of these units 
to married students (except for 5 percent occupancy by short-term 
faculty and staff appointees). Occupants were notified of the 
impending change in policy last summerj formal notice of intent is 
now being given, to be effective September 1, 1971. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: That, in order to implement the policy of the Board of 
Trustees to provide housing primarily for married stu- 
dents at Lincoln Apartments, University Apartments, and. 
North Village, on the Amherst campus, the administra- 
tion at Amherst is authorized to terminate present 
faculty and staff tenancies consistent with appropri- 
ate notice under any existing tenancy agreements $ 
further, future tenancies of said premises shall be 
limited to married students except that not more than

5 percent of the total available units of all three 
apartment complexes may be leased, to short-term faculty 
and short-term staff appointees for lease terms not to 
exceed one year, and the appointment of the said 
faculty and staff tenancies among the three apartment 
complexes shall be at the discretion of the administra- 
tion at Amherst. 

An Additional Appropriation—Water Deficiency, UM/Amherst, 
is requested. The Town of Amherst has discovered that water meters, 
owned by the University but read by the town, operated inaccurately 
throughout portions of 1967 and 1968. Based on estimates provided by 
a professional engineering firm, the amount necessary to cover this 
deficiency is $61,000 for water, and one-half of that amount for 
sewer charges, or a total of $91,6^0. As this is a prior year's 
expense, it will be necessary for the legislature to approve funds if 
this obligation is to be met. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: That an Additional Appropriation, UM/Amherst, in the 

amount of $91,650 for a Water Deficiency Charge to the 
Town of Amherst be approved. 

Projected Increases, UM/Amherst — Room and Board Charges, 
were reviewed by the committee with Vice Chancellor Campion. Mr. 
Campion reported on the preliminary figures projected for fiscal 
1972 and on the related studies now under way. All alternative plan£ 
have been fully publicized and discussion is continuing with student 
groups on the Amherst campus. Full details of the proposed charges 
are outlined in the Finance Committee minutes of April 13, 1971«

Mr. James Brooks of Northampton reported, briefly to the 
Board on his observations at the site of a sanitary landfill opera- 
tion on the UM/Amherst campus. He distributed photographs taken at 
the site and said that the conditions existing at the time the 
photographs were taken were corrected, from an aesthetic standpoint, 
almost immediately after he brought the matter to the attention of 
UM/Amherst personnel. Mr. Brooks expressed concern, however, as to 
the possibility of covered refuse affecting the ground water table. 

It was pointed out that- this landfill operation is no 
longer in operation and that arrangements have been completed, in 
cooperation with other area educational institutions and the Town of 
Amherst, to begin joint sanitary landfill operations on May 1, 1971. 

Mr. Brooks said that he was pleased with the cooperation 
he had received and that his broader objective in bringing this mat- 
ter to the attention of the Trustees was to emphasize the fact that 
the State Department of Public Health did not have sufficient man- 
power to carry out all necessary inspections for landfill operations 
across the state. 

Gratitude was expressed to Mr. Brooks for his concern as a 
conservationist .and for his efforts in bringing this matter to the 
Trustees' attention.

VOTED : To approve the lists of Undergraduate Degrees--UM/ 
Amherst awarded as of May 30, 1971, subject to 
each person meeting the academic and other require- 
ments as may be appropriate, and subject to certif- 
ication at the earliest possible date by the Office 
of the Registrar. (Document T7 1-102 ) 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the Graduate Degrees--UM/Amherst awarded 
as of May 30, 1971, as certified by the Graduate 
School Office. (Document T7 1-103) 

Chancellor Broderick noted that UM/Boston is conferring 
600 to 700 Undergraduate degrees at ceremonies on June 4. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the awarding of diplomas to those UM/Boston 

students who will have satisfied, by June 4, 1971, 

the requirements for the degree and who will have been 
so certified by the Registrar. 

The Report of th£ Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy meeting of May 17 was presented by Committee Chairman Troy. 

Faculty Teaching Loads had been the first topic of dis- 
cussion. Vice Chancellor Gluckstern had reported for UM/Amherst, 
citing first the difficulty of accurately defining a professor's 
workload outside of the classroom. This may involve preparation of 
lectures, development of new courses, teaching large class sections, 
committee and administrative assignments, and supervision of 
master's and doctoral theses. 

Guidelines, however, have been worked out for UM/Amherst: 
9 classroom hours is considered a normal load for a professor in- 
volved in research or publication, and 12-15 hours for a professor 
without this involvement. Department heads must defend assignments 
for less than 9 hours of teaching, such justification being one or 
more of the duties mentioned. 

It is the policy at UM/Amherst not to determine teaching 
loads on the basis of rank or seniority. Rather, the young faculty 
member is allowed whenever possible to teach in his specialized 
field rather than primarily in the large sections of introductory 
courses, and to carry in general a lighter load than more experi- 
enced faculty members . 

Chairman Troy summarized the UM/Amherst policy outlined 
as being the firmest possible which at the same time could provide 
the necessary degree of flexibility. 

Faculty Teaching Loads--UM/Boston were discussed by Dean 
Hoopes . He pointed out that the system described had been in effect 
when he and Chancellor Broderick had assumed office.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A normal load for a full professor at UM/Boston is de- 
fined as six hours; all other full-time faculty carry nine hours. 
It was emphasized that committee assignments have, of course, been 
heavy in a new and developing institution and that this has been 
1 reflected in teaching assignments for the faculty members involved 
in this planning. 

Questions were raised by the committee as to the advisability 
of exploring a common policy on faculty loads between campuses 
and President Wood's attention has been called to this matter. 

Pass-Fail Grading was next discussed. The Chairman des- 
cribed pass-fail grading as being essentially a system in which the 
student theoretically can devote himself wholly to intellectual 
pursuits, including independent study and reflection, without the 
pressures created by a conventional grading system. At its best it 
has this effect; at its worst, he said, it becomes a device for the 
idle to avoid serious, coherent work. 

Vice Chancellor Gluckstem had discussed the UM/Amherst 
system on the basis of his previously circulated report. The 
system, which began in 1969, allows students a single pass-fail 
course each year. This may not be in a core course or in a major 
subject. The pass-fail option must be exercised within ten days of 
registration and the course may not be converted to regular grading 
after this period. For purposes of evaluation, the instructor does 
not know the identity of students taking the course pass- fail. 

Statistics related to the UM/Amherst School of Education 
were not included in the report, as the system in use there is 
entirely pass-fail. The Faculty Senate has studied this system and 
has recommended that a thorough evaluation beimade. 

Questions were raised as to the effects of widespread use 
of pass-fail grading on graduate school admissions, and on teachers 
in particular. Dean Soutter, the Chairman noted, had indicated that 
he could foresee possible problems in this regard although the 
Medical School faculty has opted at the present time for a total 
pass-fail system. 

Pass-Fail Grading, UM/Boston had been discussed by Dean 
Hoopes on the basis of a report by UM/Boston Registrar Eleanore 
Silverman. Chairman Troy noted that the system there operated under 
fewer restraints than at UM/Amherst. (Document T7 1-108) 



Quoting from Mrs . Silverman's report: "Preliminary in- 
dications seem to suggest that students use the P/F option only for 
courses with which they are experiencing difficulty, or to avoid 
anticipated grades that threaten to lower cumulative averages. The 
most academically valuable reason for P/F — exploration of new fields 
of interest—appears rarely to be considered." 






UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Attrition Rates --UM/Amherst were discussed by the com- 
mittee, but not in depth. The discussion of this subject is re- 
ported in the minutes of the meeting of the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy of May 17, 1971, and in Documents T7 1-109 
and T7 1-110 . 

UM/ Amherst-Disadvantaged Students Program was reviewed by 
Vice Chancellor Bromery (CCEBS) . The report (Document T71-111) was 
highly recommended by the Chairman for reading by all Trustees. The 
history, funding, and course of the program since its inception in 
1968 are traced in the report. 

The success of the program is evidenced by the fact that 
several hundred applications were received this year, without a 
recruiting effort. Nearly 500 students are actively enrolled in the 
program; however, reduced funding has permitted acceptance of only 
100 new students for the next academic year. Five of the twenty 
CCEBS students receiving diplomas this year are graduating early — 
one with a cumulative average of 3.7. 

The UM/Boston Special Admissions Program (Document T71-112 
parallels the UM/Amherst CCEBS experience, the Chairman said. He 
noted that it was generally agreed by those at the committee meeting 
that a more affirmative title for this type of program is needed. 
The title, Disadvantaged Students Program, it was felt, is both 
negative and inaccurate. 

"The Disadvantaged Programs have absolutely top priority 
as far as the Board of Trustees is concerned," Chairman Healey said. 
"We are going to fight for them every step of the way," 

Renewal of a Contract for Special Educational Services be- 
tween the Boston School Committee and UM/Boston was requested by 
Vice Chancellor Hamilton. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That Vice Chancellor William R. Hamilton be and hereby 
is authorized on behalf of the Board of Trustees to 
contract with the Boston School Committee under a pro- 
gram to train Urban Librarians at the University of 
Massachusetts/Boston, as detailed in Document T7 1-104 . 

UM/Amherst AID Contract with Nigeria had been discussed 
by Vice Chancellor Gluckstern. Dr. Barbara Burn, Director of Inter- 
national Programs, submitted a status report reviewing this pro- 
posal. Briefly, UM/Amherst and the University of Connecticut will 
jointly staff a four-year training program for government adminis- 
trators at the University of Ife, Ibadan, Nigeria. Dr. Burn will 
go to Nigeria to negotiate the final contract.

Vice Chancellor Campion had prepared several options in 
relation to the U M/ Amherst Food Service Trust Fund Bud get. These 
options had been presented to campus student leaders for their con- 
sideration and review. Present and participating at the committee 
meeting were the President of the Student Senate, the President of 
the Student Union Governing Board, Mr, Elters, and another student. 
The rates being presented, Trustee Pumphret said, appear to be the 
least objectionable to the student body.

Board reported that this budget had been adopted by the Governing 
Board on May 6, 1971. An increase in annual fees from $48.00 for 
undergraduates and $38.00 for graduate students to $60.00 for both 
graduate and undergraduate students was expected to yield an esti- 
mated revenue of $1,273,800 during fiscal year 1972.

The Mary A. Maher Scholarship Fund, UM/Amherst, was estab- 
lished on August 18, 1970, to honor Dean Emeritus Mary A. Maher of 
the School of Nursing. The earned income will be used for scholar- 
ships to assist Junior or Senior students in Nursing. 

After discussion, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Mary A. Maher Scholarship account in the 
amount of $6,202.85 be established as an Endowmwnt 
Fund for the purpose of awarding a scholarship to an 
incoming Junior or Senior Nursing Student who has a 
quality point average of 2.0; is a good citizen; 
shows evidence of good physical and mental health, 
initiative, and self-direction; and demonstrates fin- 
ancial need. The recipient shall be selected in ac- 
cordance with the criteria established by the Amherst 
University Scholarship Committee on Financial Aid 
which shall also determine each year the amount of the 
award. Any excess income remaining each year may be 
added to the principal of the fund. 

Mr. Clay noted the necessity to transfer funds from the 
13 account to the 14 account to meet telephone expenses. It was 
moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve a transfer at UM/Amherst in the amount 
of $70,000 from Account No. 7410 -0000-13 to 
7410 -0900-14. 

Mr. Clay presented a proposal for transferring non-state 
funds, noting particularly that research overhead was currently be- 
low the level anticipated at the time the budget was prepared for 
the Research Trust Fund. It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve a transfer of up to $50,000 from the 
University Computer Trust Fund to the Research 
Trust Fund.

Chancellor Broderick expressed great admiration for the 
quality and extent of consultation on financial issues between the 
UM/ Amherst administration and the student body. He said that this 
cooperative effort and its results could well serve as a national 
model for this kind of activity. 

Chancellor Tippo expressed gratitude to Vice Chancellors 
Br ornery and Campion for their efforts in discussing these issues 
with the student body. The students, the Chancellor said, are not 
really happy about the projected increases in fees but they ack- 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

nowledge the fact that both Vice Chancellors have worked unsparingly 
in their efforts to provide opportunity for thorough discussion and 
understanding of the financial issues involved. 

Student Senate Treasurer Verrochi expressed "astonishment 
at the very late hours Messrs. Campion and Bromery had been willing 
to keep and gratitude for the extent to which they had been willing 
to go to show us the figures and explain the reasons why." 

Chairman Healey, on behalf of the Board, commented on the 
fact that the students had been "willing to listen." The Chairman 
also noted that all hard work is not done by the administration 
and the students; there is, he said, a Trustee committee working 
hard in the area of student relationships. He presented Mrs. 
Rowland, Chairman of the Committee on Student Activities. 

Trustee Rowland announced that the Committee plans to 
continue the work it has already begun, and will be looking in- 
tently at the quality of student life at the Amherst, Boston, and 
Worcester campuses. The committee will follow the example set by 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy this year, and have 
a series of meetings devoted to reports on selected topics from 
each of the campuses. The Trustees will in this way be brought 
up-to-date on the non-academic affairs of each campus; special 
attention is planned for UM/Boston. 

The Committee on Student Activities will meet at 10:00 a.m 
on June 30, prior to the meeting of the full Board. Chancellors 
Broderick and Bromery, and Dean Soutter, are requested to develop 
lists of areas suggested for attention during the coming year from 
which the Trustees can establish priorities, and to present them 
at this meeting of the committee. 

Chairman Healey said that he would hope that this under- 
taking by the Committee would have fullest support and encouragement 
from the other Board members. Trustee Rowland noted that the prin- 
ciples involved had grown out of the Hyannis meeting when it had 
been decided that the Board would henceforth concern itself more 
with formation of broad policies than with specifics of operating 
policies. President Wood expressed enthusiastic approval of this 
undertaking by the Committee on Student Activities. 

The Report of the Executive Committee , held prior to 
today's Board meeting, was presented by Chairman Healey. 

Plans were made at the general session at Hyannis, the 
Chairman said, to redefine the role of the Board of Trustees, and 
decision was made there that the Board should be relieved of the 
minutiae of operating considerations, focusing instead on the broad 
policy considerations. President Wood was asked to pursue the mat- 
ter of delegating some of the powers exercised by the Board to the 
President's Office or, in some cases, to the individual campuses. 
Out of this charge has come a series of meetings and the document 
which has been circulated. 

President Wood, at the Chairman's request, continued the 
discussion. He observed that these procedures are a continuation of

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

a series of steps for establishment of a genuine University-wide 
structure and development of an effective oversight of the re- 
sources at the University's disposal. 

Essentially, the President said, the legal document cir- 
culated and brought before the Board by the Executive Committee 
retains in the Board of Trustees the powers and responsibilities 
for personnel action, but adjusts and rearranges the methods of 
their execution. The Board retains its individual approval over 
tenure appointments, over all positions, authorizations, and 
exceptions to the established salary scale, so that extraordinary 
items and the aggregate of ordinary items come before the Board's 
attention. At the same time, as the accompanying memorandum makes 
clear, informational systems continue to keep the Trustees up-to- 
date as to the actions involved. The bulk of the personnel actions 
however, will be delegated to the campuses and to the Dean of the 
Medical School so that the capacity to approve an appointment rests 
with those who have the qualifications to judge the individual 
appointment and to know the need. The President, under this 
system of personnel action, retains control over the administrative 
structure in terms of the number of positions and handles specific 
categories such as consultants and certain magnitudes of funds, so 
that he exercises oversight through administrative channels rather 
than individual professional appointments. He will also review 
the personnel actions to be presented to the Trustees prior to 
Board action. "This is, I believe," the President said, "how an 
effective philosophy of system management can operate." 

The President's Council has had extensive discussions on 
the document outlining the proposed delegation of authority. There 
have been a few changes in working of the document suggested by 
the Executive Committee which will be incorporated. 

The President added that this is not the end of delegatioi., 
or requests to this Board of adjustments of manner of procedure. 
"We will come before you again in terms of the management of funds 
and finances and the comingling of funds among campuses of the 
University. These will relate to trust funds from private sources 
as well as state and federal funds. We will be before you again 
in terms of the implications that these votes may have, if any, on 
the by-laws. I am conscious that probably at the conclusion of 
this effort, the by-laws of the Board will require some adjustment, 
as well as review of funding and budgetary procedures." The Presi- 
dent requested approval of the proposed vote delegating the author- 
ities as outlined. 

Chairman Healey called for discussion. 

Trustee Crowley raised the question of the possible neces- 
sity for revision of the by-laws before the proposed changes could 
be made. He also asked if the by-laws were before the Executive 
Committee at the time of their deliberations. He had no objections, 
he said, to delegation as such if it could be properly limited. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

He said, however, that he would like to see any changes now made 
come within the by-laws as adopted at their last revision. 

The vote was not looked at by the Executive Committee, 
Chairman Healey said, in terms of technical changes in the by-laws 
of the Board. It was rather looked at as a vehicle for administrative 
policy. The vote was drafted by counsel, but the Chairman added tha : 
he could not speak for counsel as to whether or not he felt that its 
provisions lay within the framework of the present by-laws. 

Chairman Healey suggested that the vote be taken subject 
to approval by counsel. If Mr. Broadhurst feels that changes in the 
by-laws are necessary, in respect to the question Trustee Crowley 
has quite legitimately raised, the requisite notices can be sent out 
prior to the June meeting of the Board. 

Trustee Croce stated that he was in favor of the proposed 
delegation, seeing it "as an interpretation of, rather than a change 
in, the by-laws." He added that the point had not yet been made that 
the delegations could be rescinded at any time by action of the Boarc

a further look at the 



Trustee Crowley stated the position that his memory of the 
present by-laws specify that appointments above the rank of professor 
be made by the Board, and so the proposed delegations would actually 
be amending the by-laws in this respect. He also questioned if enough 
time remained before the June meeting of the Board for proper noti- 
fication. However, he said, he was prepared to approve the vote 
suggested, as a temporary measure. 

Chairman Healey put the question as one of substance. It 
is quite clear, he said, that the Board can rescind the delegation 
at any time it chooses to do so. Also, reporting requirements in the 
proposal insure that the Trustees can effectively monitor performance 
of the administration in the personnel areas. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved by Trustee 
Croce, seconded by Trustee Crowley, and 

VOTED : That all prior action of the Board of Trustees delegatirg 
authority to elect or appoint members of the pro- 
fessional staff of the University be and hereby is 
rescinded, hereby confirming all action heretofore 
taken by others pursuant to any such delegation, and

she said, to have Dr. Louis Lyons join with the committee for their

astic approval.

The Committee had reviewed the UM/ Amherst audit report for 
Fiscal 1970, together with Treasurer Johnson's response (Doc. T71-119J ) 



The Treasurer is reviewing the travel policy of the University with 
the intention of increasing overall flexibility. In connection with 
the auditor's comments on the School of Education Innovations Film 
Fund, the Amherst administration and Dean Dwight Allen will submit a 
request through the President's Office for such revisions in the 
operation of this account as will meet the necessary requirements. 
Mr. Pumphret noted that the advice of University Counsel Austin 
Broadhurst is being sought regarding Residence Hall Trust Funds. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On recommendation of the Finance Committee, since action on 
operating budgets for Fiscal 1972 cannot be taken until the Legisla- 
ture provides appropriations, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : Whereas the Commonwealth has not as yet provided appro- 
priations for the full fiscal year commencing July 1, 
1971; and 

Whereas it is not possible for the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity to authorize operating budgets for the fiscal year 
starting July 1, 1971, until state appropriations are made 
and 

Whereas the authorization to commit and disburse funds 
throughout the University is governed by the Trustee- 
approved operating budgets; 

Therefore, be it resolved that, until such time as operat- 
ing budgets for the fiscal year July 1, 1971, to June 30, 
1972, are approved by the Trustees, the President may direct 
the Chancellors and the Dean of the Medical School and 
other administrative officers to make such commitment of 
any funds and to authorize the expenditure of such sums as 
may be or may become available for the continued operation 
of the University including the education of the increased 
numbers of students already admitted, and to take any 
actions to implement this vote as in his judgment he may d$em 
necessary or desirable reporting the same to the Trustees 
in the usual manner. 



UM/Boston had requested approval of an increase in the 
Health Service Trust Fund Fee in the amount of $1.00 per student per 
semester to meet rising costs without extending services. Regarding 
his recorded reservations on this action, President Wood indicated 
his concern about the entire health service program. He added that 
a report will be made to the Board on the needs and requirements of 
the entire System, including possible use of the resources available 
at the Medical School. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To increase the Health Service Trust Fund Fee, UM/Boston, 
in the amount of $1.00 per student per semester, from the 
present rate of $12.00 to $13.00. 

A fee increase of $100.00 has also been requested by UM/ 
Boston for One Year of Study in France . This would make the cost 
comparable with similar programs of other universities. 

Following a brief discussion of specific items included in 
the amount charged, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To increase the total charges for the UM/Boston program for 
one year of study in France in the amount of $100.00, from 
the present rate of $1900 to a new rate of $2000.

Regarding the recent change allowing 18-year-olds to regis 
ter where they are attending school, Trustee Howes, Chairman of the 
Amherst Board of Selectmen, indicated that greater student interest 
is anticipated in state and federal elections than in town affairs. 
Amherst town officials do not plan to appeal the decision, although 
the ratio of eligible students to residents is about three to one. 

President Wood observed that the Chancellors and the Dean 
of the Medical School had reported informally to the Board at lunch. 

Vice Chancellor Hamilton was invited to introduce Dr. 
Dorothy Marshall, newly appointed Dean of Faculty and Provost, UM/ 
Boston. Dr. Marshall was formerly Dean of the College at Bryn Mawr 
and more recently Director of Special Studies and Lecturer at Holy 
Cross . 

Chancellor Tippo introduced Lee Sandwen, President of the 
Student Senate, UM/ Amherst, who in turn presented Mrs. Betsy Peltz, 
newly appointed Director of the Day Care Center recently established 
on the Amherst campus. This facility is primarily for student mo- 
thers of children between the ages of 2 years 9 months to 5 years. 
One of the 4-H lodges is being equipped for the Center's opening in 
September. 

Trustee Gordon, as a former UM alumni association president 
congratulated Chancellor Tippo on the Chancellors' Club brochure 
which he described as the first real professional attempt to organize 
alumni in terms of fund raising. Dr. Tippo acknowledged assistance 
from Vice President Lashman and Joseph Marcus, Special Assistant for 
Public Affairs, UM/ Amherst, in developing the plan. 

Dr. Tippo introduced Professor Joseph Burroughs who has 
been appointed by the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst, to represent them 
at committee and Board meetings. 

President Wood introduced Kevin Carman who will serve on 
the Board of Trustees as student member for one year ending March 31 
1972. 



Dr. Wood mentioned the two-day Board retreat in Lenox, 
dealing with policy reports, particularly on UM/Worcester, and with 
the report of the Committee on the Future University. Secretary 
McCartney requested attendance confirmation from any Trustees or 
members of the President's Council who have not yet replied. 

President Wood reviewed highlights of the 1973 fiscal year 
Maintenance Budget on the individual campuses. He outlined the sub 
sequent consolidation and adjustment process within his office. 
Special attention was given to pressures of enrollment; also to the 
uncertain nature of present economic conditions. By slide projectioji 
he offered a summary of the brochure previously mailed to all Trust 
ees (Doc. T72-002) , detailing the 1973 Maintenance Budget request of 
$88, 300, 615~. Dr. Wood stressed the increasing need to provide under 
graduate scholarships, and he noted also a major slowing down in the 
UM/Amherst graduate program at the present time.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The President added, as credit to his predecessor, that 
growth in enrollment over the past ten years was matched by faculty 
growth and dollar support. 

Chairman Healey, reporting for the Executive Committee, 
which had reviewed the budget in detail, congratulated the President, 
Chancellors, Dean, and staff for their diligent work on the 1973 
budget request. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the recommendations of President Wood on the 

University's Fiscal Year 1973 Maintenance Budget Request 
and to approve as a ceiling figure the amount of $88,822,7 
which will continue to be subject to refinement and reduc- 
tion by the President in consultation with the Chancellors 
and the Dean of the Medical School. 

Mr. Healey granted a request from Mr. Thomas Lawler to 
address the Board regarding alleged discrimination against his ap- 
pointment as Head of Residence in Greenough House at UM/ Amherst. 
Mr. Lawler considered the situation to be a breach of trust between 
students and the Dean of Students. The Board made no comment, since 
Amherst administration had jurisdiction in this matter and had con- 
curred in the administrative action previously taken. 

Following a brief discussion regarding transfers in the 
COMTECH appropriation and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the following transfers between subsidiary 
accounts in the COMTECH appropriation, UM/ Amherst: 

a. $5,000 from account 03 to account 10 

b. $3,500 from account 03 to account 11

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At Dr. Wood's Invitation, Dean Morris presented the Com- 
mittee's final report which had already received near-unanimous en- 
dorsement from the senates and the faculty at UM/ Amherst. (Doc. 
T72-009 ) Dr. Morris stressed that the report is an expression of 
concern about the welfare of the University, not about individual 
personalities. It is intended to be in the interest of learning 
from present experience to prevent similar difficulties in the futur^ 

Trustee approval was requested for (1) a clear demarcation 
of functions, (between the Campus and the System Office) (2) protec- 
tion of quality of programs at UM/Amherst, (3) clarification of the 
budgetary process, and (4) full communication on all major issues. 

Professor Joseph Burroughs, as Faculty Senate representative 
to the Board, then read a resolution of commendation of Chancellor 
Tippo as voted at a general faculty meeting held this morning. He 
noted that the Trustees on April 22, 1970, voted to approve in 
principle the UM/Amherst Faculty Senate proposal on Faculty Partic- 
ipation in University Governance. He referred to paragraph six of 
Doc. T70-062A , adding that the Faculty and Student Senates had voted 
on October 6, 1971, in the event of resignation of the Chancellor, 
to establish a Joint Ad Hoc Search Committee (Amherst campus) to fil 
the position. This Committee would submit nominations to the Trustees 
until a candidate receives Board approval. 

Chairman Healey thanked Mr. Burroughs for his expression 
on behalf of the faculty and senates at UM/Amherst and stated that 
the Executive Committee of the Board will meet following this meeting 
to consider recommendations for ways and means of seeking a new 
Chancellor, to be presented to the full Board which will be recessed 
until 9:30 on the following morning, October 8. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To allow an interval of one-half hour following recess of 
this meeting of the Executive Committee for information 
purposes . 

Reporting on the Executive Committee meeting of October 4, 
Mr. Healey stated that each member of the Board had been notified 
through the President's Office of Chancellor Tippo' s resignation. 
He read the following letter from Dr. Tippo dated September 30, 1971 

"Dear (Mr. Healey): I write to submit my resignation as 
Chancellor, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, effective Septembe 
1, 1972, or earlier if the Board wishes. It is my hope that I be 
granted sabbatical leave for one semester, after which it is my wish 
to take up duties as Professor of Botany on this campus. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank you personally anc 
the Board of Trustees for the support and encouragement you have ex 
tended to me since I came to Amherst in 1964."

After careful consideration, the Executive Committee, "in 
the best interests of the System and the Amherst campus", recommend 
immediate acceptance of the resignation. On motion made and seconded , 
it was unanimously 

VOTED : To accept Chancellor Tippo 's resignation effective at once 
and to grant his request for sabbatical leave for one 
semester, the time to be determined mutually by the Acting 
Chancellor to be designated for the Amherst Campus and by 
Dr. Tippo. 

Chairman Healey then offered the following resolution, 
which was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : BE IT RESOLVED: That the Board of Trustees expresses to 

Dr. Oswald Tippo its deep appreciation for his outstanding 
contributions to the academic excellence of the University 
of Massachusetts. A distinguished scholar in his own righ :, 
he filled the position of Provost beginning in 1964 with 
- dedication and distinction. He was able to expand and 

improve academic programs at a critical time in the Univer} 
sity's growth. His reputation and leadership attracted 
able and eager teachers to Amherst. As Chancellor he faceifl 
with resolution and imagination the problems of a large, 
complex, and diverse campus. He enjoys the respect and 
affection of students, faculty, and the community. The 
Board wishes him well in his continuing role as teacher 
and scholar. 

Mr. Healey continued his report, stating that the Executive 
Committee is recommending Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Ran- 
dolph W. Bromery, for the position of Acting Chancellor, UM/Amherst. 
He reviewed Dr. Bromery 's distinguished academic background and ex- 
perience, noting his advancement to Vice Chancellor since coming to 
the University in 1967. Trustee Sandwen remarked that faculty and 
students on the Amherst campus should have been informed and con- 
sulted regarding appointment to the position of Acting Chancellor. 
He stated that the student body did nominate four men of whom Dr. 
Bromery was one, the others being Dr. Franklin Patterson, Dr. Robert 
Gluckstern, and Dr. John Hanson. He also urged that, in the event 
the situation occurs again, the entire campus community be allowed 
to participate in the decision-making process. 

President Wood responded that the emergency nature of the 
present situation necessitated meetings of the Executive Committee 
and the full Board as required by statute, but that, if it had been 
possible to undertake discussions without public notice, the proce- 
dure suggested by Mr. Sandwen would have been appropriate. 



t was moved, seconded, and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To appoint Dr. Randolph W. Bromery to serve as Acting 
.Chancellor, UM/ Amherst, until a Chancellor is chosen. 

President Wood then recommended approval of the operating 
budgets for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1972, for all three cam- 
puses as well as the System Office. He and Acting Chancellor Bromer|r 
will continue discussions concerning certain details and adjustments 
particularly those that concern some of the student expenditures. 
Mr. Broadhurst, replying to a question from Mr. Sandwen regarding an 
item for interest payments on the Campus Center garage, stated that 
outstanding notes in the amount of $20,500,000 for the Campus Center 
will mature in December, at which time another method of financing 
will be effected by the Authority, possibly by selling additional 
bonds or notes. When permanent financing is secured, the annual 
interest cost will have to be covered by revenues from the project. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the operating budgets for the fiscal year endin 
June 30, 1972 ( Doc. T72-004 ) for the System Administration 
UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, and the UM/Medical School, with 
further refinement of the UM/Amherst budget to be approved 
by the President with the provision that the fund alloca- 
tions contained in the System Administration budget shall 
govern where applicable in all of the budgets. 

University Counsel Broadhurst explained the Transfer by 
Purchase of Student Union Building from University Building Associa - 
tion to University Building Authority , as outlined in Doc. T72-008, 
entitled "The Campus Centert-and the Student Union Building," dated 
September 23, 1971. He noted that Chapter 594 of the Acts of 1971 
allows the old University Building Association to sell the Student 
Union building to the Commonwealth, and the Commonwealth to sell the 
building at the same price to the University Building Authority. 
This transaction climaxes some three years of deliberation between 
counsels for the Association and the Authority with the Attorney 
General's Office. The lease to the University Building Authority of 
the land on which the Campus Center and the Student Union buildings 
are located, including the Campus Center garage, involves 10 to 11 
acres. Mr. Broadhurst commented that the principal amount of bonds 
outstanding is $1,090,000, which the $960,000 with interest and 
other items will cover, with a resultant saving of $130,000. Mr. 
Healey expressed the Board's appreciation for the fine work done by 
Mr. Cass in arranging the legislation. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : That, pursuant to and as authorized by Chapter 594, of the 
Acts of 1971, there be and hereby is authorized (1) the 
purchase by the Board of Trustees, acting in the name and 
on behalf of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, of the 
student union building located at the campus of the Univer 
sity in the town of Amherst, together with all equipment 
and furnishings therein and the rights appurtenant thereto

Cass is preparing a proposal which, it is hoped, will allow negotia- 
tions to proceed for the building.

he had placed the interest of the University in top priority through 
the past week, the Acting Chancellor mentioned the problem of a 
communications lag. He said that the University of Massachusetts, ir 
his opinion, is the best state university in the nation. Credit 
should go, he said, to many people — and particularly to Dr. Tippo, 
under whose able administration he has experienced a most rewarding 
four years. Dr. Bromery plans to continue Dr. Tippo 1 s lead in ex- 
panding the graduate program. Through talks with students and faculty, 
he will seek a better understanding, of the outlook for the Graduate 
School. With the leveling off of enrollment at UM/Amherst, Dr. 
Bromery stressed the importance of giving attention to the quality 
and depth of both undergraduate and graduate programs. He added that 
he will continue to represent the concerns of the student body from 
a much broader perspective with the help of graduate and undergraduate 
student, faculty, and administrators so that a better understanding 
of UM/Amherst campus needs may be assured.

Board began in the mid-1960 's is now complete. 

The President then introduced Mr. Ross Benjamin, Co-chair- 
man of the 1971 SWAP conference. Mr. Benjamin reported that the 
conference will be held on November 19, 20, and 21 at the Northfield 
Inn in East Northfield, Massachusetts. The three major topics of di£ ■ 
cussion at the conference will be: (1) the Art of being a Chancellor 
(the choosing of a Chancellor and his relationship with students and 
administrators, and his function in the University), (2) the Interface 
between the University and Society, and (3) the structure of the 
University. Mr. Benjamin, on behalf of the SWAP committee, extended 
an invitation to the Trustees to attend the conference and commented 
on the importance of their presence during the meeting as well as on 
their enthusiasm displayed at past conferences. 

Chairman Healey said the former conference had been extremely 
worthwhile. He encouraged the Trustees to participate again this 
year. 

President Wood called for comment by the Acting Chancellor 
of the Amherst campus, Dr. Bromery, who informed the Board that, due 
to a natural gas cut-off, many students and staff in the area had 
been without heat over the past few days. A decision had been made 
to open up Hamlin House free of charge to those members of the Univei 
sity community who had been inconvenienced by the emergency. 

Dr. Bromery continued that the turnout at the smaller ses- 
sions of the conference on undergraduate education held a few weeks 
ago was relatively low on the last day. In general, however, the 
conference did go well. 

Dr. Bromery informed the Board of a project b> Professor 
Pierce and some of his co-workers in the Department of Speech to 
study speech, learning and language disorders among the residents of 
the Belchertown State School. The project has played a very important 
role at Belchertown in determining what some of the speech disorders 
are and how they affect people in the institution. Suggestions are 
made on ways to improve the conditions. Dr. Bromery thanked Professcjr 
Pierce for his dedication to the program. 

The new Acting Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Dr. 

Robert Gage, was introduced to the Board by Dr. Bromery. It was alsc 

reported that James Perry has been named Special Assistant to the 
Chancellor for Alumni Affairs. 

Dr. Bromery also announced completion of a long series of 
negotiations on UM/ Amherst labor contracts. These are now due for 
formal signing sometime next week. Persons concerned will be notifiejd 
shortly. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood announced that Chancellor Broderick of the 
Boston campus has given to the Trustees copies of his remarks to th£ 
Boston Chamber of Commerce on November 1. The President added that 
the report was a comprehensive and responsive document to the Trusters' 
desire to have regular information summaries of campus developments. 

Chancellor Broderick reported that the UM/Boston campus is 
in the process of dividing into two colleges, including faculty, 
students and staff.. The. process of writing two constitutions .which 
would supersede the present one is underway. These will be brought 
to the Board in December. 

Dr. Saunders, reporting; for Dean Soutter, informed the 
Board that, in conjunction with selection of the third class of stu- 
dents at the Medical School, a series of open houses will be held 
to increase communication with the various colleges in the New EnglaJid 
area. The first of these will be held on November 17. The Chairman 
of the pre-med advisory committee from each of the colleges in New 
England has been invited. 

Dean Soutter announced this week that four hospitals in 
Worcester and the Wesson Women's Hospital in Springfield had signed 
affiliation agreements with the Medical School. Dr. Saunders ex- 
plained that too major Medical School activities in the next few months 
would be the development of their clinical curriculum for the third 
and fourth year, and the recruitment of clinical faculty. An accre- 
ditation visit for approval of the third and fourth year curriculum 
is scheduled for May of this academic year. 



Renovation of the Shaw Building will be completed in early 



December, 



Chairman Healey next recognized Dean Morris, Chairman of 
the UM/ Amherst Committee of Concern who, in turn, introduced the mem' 
bers of the committee to the Board. 

Dean Morris then read the report (Doc. T72-009 , which had 
been distributed to the Board at the October meeting) . 

Trustee approval was requested for (1) a clear demarcation 
of functions between the campus and the University-wide Office, (2) 
protection of quality of programs at UM/Amherst, (3) clarification 
of the budgetary process, and (4) full communication on all major 
issues. Professor Morris asked the Board to respond to the statement!. 

Chairman Healey said that the Board plans to respond forma] ly 
to the statement, but that they are not in a position to do so at 
this time due to the complexities implicit in some of the questions 
asked. The Chairman stated emphatically, however, that the Board 
does not intend to sacrifice quality on one campus in order to improve 
quality on another campus. The Trustees are interested equally in 
all campuses of the University. Mr. Healey reaffirmed that the Boarc 
stands for the principle expressed in item number 2 of the statement: 
"that improvement of the quality of programs in the newer units not

He said that 
Formal response 



In reply to a question on consultation between the Univer- 
sity-wide Office and the various senates, President Wood said that 
he took cognizance of the Committee of Concern's statement and would 
be consulting with both campuses. In fact, this has already begun. 
The President is deeply concerned with strengthening communication 
and exchange of views throughout the University. 

Chairman Healey expressed concern that the Board is con- 
tinually placed in an adversary role vis-a-vis the various campuses. 
He reminded those present that the interest and dedication of the 
members of the Board of Trustees are amply illustrated by the devel- 
opment of the University in Amherst, Boston, and Worcester to its 
present impressive size and prestige. Mr. Healey expressed the 
feeling that some campus groups do not believe that the Trustees 
listen, consult or have the interest of the University at heart. 
The law of the Commonwealth states that the Board of Trustees is 
ultimately responsible for the operation of the University. Certain 
decisions must be made by the Board. Yet, the Board has a long 
record of consultation, of willingness to listen and of fostering 
open discussion of campus problems at all levels. 

Mr. Healey said that the Board would try to have a state- 
ment in response to the Committee of Concern ready for the December 
or January meeting. 

General discussion followed regarding the Committee of 
Concern's statement. Apprehension was expressed by some present 
that the Amherst campus would suffer as a result of development in 
Boston and Worcester. Chairman Healey made it plain that there were 
no quality restrictions being imposed on UM/ Amherst, only a leveling 
off of the number of students. 

The Board was informed that the concern of the Faculty 
Senate on the Amherst campus was not only as strong as a month ago, 
but that it is more intense due to the recently allocated budget. 
The President responded that the notion that the University is 
satisfied with the present budget is completely wrong. He mentioned 
that the University is comparatively well-off compared to the other 
115 Land-Grant Institutions, many of whom suffered severe cutbacks 
on budgets during the current fiscal year. 

Earlier this year, the Trustees had asked for a thorough 
evaluation and review of the capacity to mobilize more resources 
from other than government and state funds. The President informed 
the Board that Vice President Lashman has had this as one of his 
assignments. The report of the Lavin Company, which undertook to 
study this, has already been distributed to the Board. Dr. Wood 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

then turned to Mr. Lashman for a presentation of the highlights of 
the report. 

Mr. Lashman gave a brief summary of the report (Doc. T72- 
018 ) , using the overhead projector. The report evaluates the back- 
ground of present support at the University and makes recommendation 
for the future. Suggested are three major efforts that would be 
necessary to reach the projected figure of alumni support, $400,000 
over the $84,000 raised for the past year: establishment of a 
Chancellor's Club at $1,000 membership, increasing activity of the 
Century Club to enroll, perhaps, 1000 members, and personal 
solicitation by telephone. Comparative figures on voluntary support 
at other universities throughout the country were given. 

According to the report, the three major functions of 
development are: communications, alumni services, and fund raising. 
The report also discussed two entities: the University of Massa- 
chusetts Foundation and a Development Council. Recommendations for 
the Foundation, which was established in 1950 (Trustees Crowley and 

Troy were among the founders), presented in the report were: (a) 
that the Foundation change its structure to match the University's 
current organization; (b) that the Foundation cooperate with a 
Development Council, and (c) that, in particular, it function as a 
repository for special gifts. Mr. Lashman pointed out to the Board 
that the Foundation is already moving along these lines with great 
enthusiasm. The report also recommends the establishment of a 
Development Council under the control of the Trustees to concentrate 1 
primarily on fund raising; also, to make sure that there is an ef- 
fective internal organization before seeking outside membership. 

Mr. Lashman divided the tasks ahead into five major 
functions: (1) planning the representation and structure of the 
Development Council, (2) identifying and training leadership for 
solicitation, (3) initiation of some reasonably sophisticated pro- 
spect research, (4) the establishment of a priority of needs and 
development of a case, and (5) the organization of a staff and the 
assignment of functional responsibility to carry out those tasks. 
The Lavin Report recommendations concern only the Boston and Amherst 
campuses. Voluntary support for the Medical School is to be taken 
up later as a separate problem. 

To sum up, the report suggested that with effective organi 
zation, with good detailed planning, with reasonable goals, with 
deceiiit communication, and with appropriate budgetary backing for the 
voluntary support effort, the University should make substantial 
progress in this area. Specifically, the report suggests that the 
present three-year average of $850,000 from all of these sources 
can be tripled to about two and one third million dollars in the 
next five years. 

Mr. Lashman next discussed some of the weaknesses of the 
report. It does not lay out the kind of multi-campus structure 
that is needed and the list of possible means of support is loosely 
described. The issue of development is placed into a needed per- 
spective, though the report may not really say anything new.

Discussion followed. The Chairman expressed concern about 
the level of financial support from the alumni of the University and 
its Effect on the state legislature. Individual legislators are 
beginning to ask what support the University is receiving from 
alumni. 

Trustee Maginnis reminded the Board that the great in- 
crease in the number of students graduating from the University has 
occurred only in the last ten years or so. Trustee Sandwen comment- 
ed that the University should be concerned about reaching out to the 
alumni with services, etc., and to explain why they should support 
the University. Trustee Abrams pointed out that the report does 
mention reaching out to the alumni. 

After brief further discussion, and on motion made and 
seconded it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees approve the establishment 
of a Development Council to take responsibility, 
subject to Trustee approval, for plans and programs 
serving the University's fund-raising objectives. 
Appointments to the Council are to be made by the 
Board of Trustees on recommendation of the President. 

It was further 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees seek a closer working 
relationship with the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation, Inc., with a view to utilizing its 
leadership and organization to strengthen Univer- 
sity development objectives. 

Chairman Troy presented the report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. The first item was a request for 
the establishment of a new Department of Exercise Science (Doc. 
T72-014) . It was observed that this change involves no additional 



funds, but is part of the general effort to improve academic 
quality. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a Department of 

Exercise Science in the School of Physical Education. 

The Chairman informed the Board that the Committee had 
discussed in some depth the policy of nepotism. The President is 
planning to summarize some of the ideas presented in papers on 
this subject and bring recommendations to the committee at its 
next meeting. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Also discussed was a proposal from the Continuing Educatio 
Committee to establish two degree programs for part-time students. 
At present, part-time students are not accepted at the University, 
except in rare situations, though the demand is very great. The 
Continuing Education Proposal for a Bachelor's Degree in General 



Studies (Doc. T72-015 ) calls for all present undergraduate degree 



programs (and one new degree program to be called Bachelor of Genera! 
Studies) to be made available to part-time students under the direct. 01 
of the Division of Continuing Education. The details of these pro- 
grams have been carefully studied and defined in the proposal. 



It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : Because of the high interest in external degrees 
and open universities across the Commonwealth and 
the importance of initiating programs for part- 
time students, that the Board of Trustees herewith 
approves the proposal that all present undergraduate 
degree programs and one new degree program--the 
Bachelor of General Studies — be made available to 
part-time students under the temporary aegis of the 
Division of Continuing Education. 

Trustee Troy also reported that the proposed UM/Amherst 
calendar, 1972-73 , was brought up for discussion. The main point 
of the new calendar is to bring the University's schedule into line 
with that of the other colleges in the area for improved convenience 
and better inter-institutional relations. Also, briefly discussed 
was the grading policy. No action was taken on either of these two 
subjects . 

Chairman Rowland informed the Board of discussions at her 
committee meeting regarding counseling on both the Amherst and 
Boston campuses. The two preliminary reports that were presented 
at that time (Doc. T72-012 ) entitled, "Report on the Counseling 
Services on the Boston Campus of the University of Massachusetts", 
and (Doc. T72-013 ) entitled, "Report on the Current Status of Student 
Counseling at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst" provided 
a basis for discussion. The Committee approved the establishment of 
a pan-campus study group to report back to the Committee by December 
with policy option proposals for Trustee consideration on student 
services, with special emphasis on counseling, special admissions, 
budgetary consideration, etc. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of a pan-campus study 
group on student services, with special emphasis on 
counseling, under the chairmanship of Acting Vice 
Chancellor Robert Gage, UM/Amherst, said group to 
develop policy option proposals for Trustee con-

sideration with the assistance of outside 
professional consultants so required; and 
to request that a preliminary report be 
presented to the Secretary not later than 
December 1, 1971. 

Trustee Rowland also announced that the Student Activities 
Committee, at the invitation of the SWAP committee, would be holding 
an informal meeting at the 1971 SWAP Conference at Northfield Inn 
on November 20, at 1:30 p.m. Topics for discussion at this meeting 
will be the residential college and the counseling services in 
general. It was suggested that the Committee on Faculty and Educa- 
tional Policy would be interested in attending this meeting. 

Vice President Phillips presented two transfers for the 
Medical School. The first provides for positions which are 
essential to the expanded program of the Medical School, but which 
were not authorized in its '72 appropriation. It has become nec- 
essary to utilize 03 funds to support those positions. Additional 
03 funds are also needed to meet obligations for planning services. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To transfer between subsidiary accounts $80,000 
from account 01 to account 03 at the UM/Medical 
School. 

Because the Shaw building, as renovated, is not adequate 
for its staff and activities, the School has had to rent space for 
the Microbiology staff at the Worcester Biological Foundation and 
additional off-campus space for general storage and for the materiel 
staff. 

It was further 

VOTED : To transfer: 

a. $5,000 from account 01 to account 16 

b. $13,000 from account 11 to account 16 

Two personnel actions were presented for approval. It 
was moved, seconded, and

sional staff is hereby appointed, promoted,

Chairman Healey next introduced to the Board Dr. Nancy 
Tooney who, on behalf of Dr. Freda Salzman, UM/Boston, read a pre- 
pared statement to the Board reviewing the past history of her case 
and requesting the reappointment of Dr. Salzman. 

Since the Salzman case is not currently pending before the 
Board of Trustees, Dr. Tooney' s statement has been placed on file 
in the Office of the Secretary.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was 
called to order by Chairman Healey at 2:20 p.m. The minutes of the 
meeting of November 10, 1971, were presented for approval. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on November 10, 1971. 

Chairman Healey recognized President Wood. The President 
first discussed his hopes for even more extensive alliance between 
private and public colleges and universities. He pointed out that 
a legal review of different forms of public-private cooperation is 
currently being conducted. Certain difficult constitutional questions 
exist, but it is very possible that contracts can be drafted which 
would satisfy any constitutional requirements. Several on-going 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

forms of cooperation between public and private institutions were 
listed including (1) the Five-College Study at Amherst, (2) the 
Worcester Consortium, (3) the Boston effort in which the presidents 
of eight universities with graduate programs have been meeting to 
discuss common problems, and (4) certain bilateral arrangements 
being handled by Professor Patterson specifically related to Thomp- 
son Academy, Northeastern University, and Boston University. Forms 
of cooperation include possibilities for joint inventory and planning 
and the use of excess capacity at one institution by other institu- 
tions. The President announced that he will be speaking at the New 
England Governors' Conference where he will suggest a review of con- 
stitutions and laws with the view of increasing the collaboration 
between public and private institutions. 

Next the President devoted a few comments to tenure policy 
He pointed out that the UM/Boston campus policy guideline limiting 
the number of tenured faculty to 50% and the memorandum setting 
forth certain requirements for tenure consideration at the Amherst 
campus were only tentative positions to meet a current need. They 
do not represent fixed University policy and will be reviewed by the 
full Board of Trustees in the near future. Dr. Wood pointed out thai: 
tenure must be carefully reviewed with the following objectives in 
mind: 

1. the ability to continue to secure the best possible faculty 
and maintain that faculty, 

2. the need to meet obligations and promises made to the present 
faculty, 

3. the need to review standards of evaluation of faculty per- 
formance, 

4. the need to present to the Board of Trustees a sound actu- 
arial analysis of the status of tenure, and 

5. the need to review these policies and objectives in light of 
the tenure experiences at neighboring state institutions 
and other private institutions in Massachusetts. 



Thirdly, the President mentioned that the University is 
continuing its exploration of ways that it can contribute to other 
state agencies and departments, both locally and statewide. He 
mentioned that a joint University—Department of Mental Health Com- 
mittee had met and drafted a memorandum of agreement with the Univer 
sity of Massachusetts and the Department of Mental Health of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts (Doc. T72-034 ) which set forth ways 
by which each of the signatories could contribute to the other. 
President Wood and Trustee Greenblatt, Commissioner of Mental Health 
then proceeded to sign the agreement. Dr. Greenblatt said that he 
looked forward enthusiastically to the program whereby the Universit} 
and the Department of Mental Health could work together. He added 
that he felt that this was a significant event in University- Common 
wealth relations.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



The Acting Chancellor's representative, UM/ Amherst, and 
Chancellor Broderick, UM/Boston, were invited to comment. Both 
declined. The President turned to Dean Soutter. 

In his report on the Medical School, Dean Soutter mentionec 
that applications closed on December 15 and that there had been 
716 applications for the 24 places in the upcoming first-year class 
at the Medical School. He also said that both faculty recruitment 
and construction of the Medical School facilities were going very 
well. 

Chairman Healey presented the report of the Executive 
Committee. The first item concerned the donation of a quantity of 
loam to the Worcester Little League. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Dean of the Medical School 
to transfer a quantity of loam from the Med- 
ical School site to the City of Worcester, 
with the request that said loam be made avail- 
able at no charge to the Worcester Little 
League, subject to assurances of counsel on the 
legality of the procedure. 

The next item concerned the proposed Board of Trustees 
Policy on Discrimination and Conflict of Interest . Chairman Healey 
indicated that the document had been reviewed and seemed to resolve 
the problems of personnel policy within the framework of current 
laws on discrimination in hiring and personnel practices. 



He recognized Dr. Kistiakowsky, a representative of the 
National Organization of Women (NOW). While she tended to agree 
with the general tone of both the proposed vote and the Implementaticjn 
of University Policy on Discrimination and Conflict of Interest 
(Doc. T72-029 ) , she did object to some of the specific language in 
the implementation document. Her statement is attached as Doc. 
T72-031 . Mrs. Kistiakowsky indicated that the proposed vote was 



perfectly acceptable, adding that her group worried only about the 
legal implications of the implementation policy. President Wood 
said he felt there was no fundamental disagreement in principle 
between her position and the implementation memorandum, adding that 
he was willing to suspend the implementation order so that legal 
counsel could review it in light of the exception taken by the NOW 
memorandum. Chairman Healey then suggested that the implementation 
statement be withdrawn and only the proposed vote be acted upon. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the following be and hereby is adopted as 
University policy respecting the appointment, 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

promotion, retention and determination of other 
conditions of employment of officers and employees 
of the University, subject to such specific pro- 
visions respecting particular categories of 
employees as may now or hereafter be contained 
in agreements entered into with employee organizations 
under the provisions of General Laws, Chapter 149, 
Section 178F, as now in effect or hereafter amended, 
name ly : 

The Board of Trustees reaffirms that it is the 
policy of the University of Massachusetts that 
every officer or employee shall perform all official 
actions in full accord with the Constitution and 
applicable laws and regulations of the United States 
and of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and shall 
take affirmative action to ensure equal employment 
opportunity for all persons without regard to race, 
color, religion, sex, or national origin. This in- 
cludes recruiting, appointment, training and development: 
promotion, tenure, wages, hours, and other conditions 
of employment at the University of Massachusetts. 
The principal criteria for decisions in such matters 
shall be demonstrated qualifications for, or per- 
formance of, the duties and responsibilities of the 
position involved. 

No officer or employee of the University shall 
participate directly in any decision or recommendation 
relating to appointment, promotion, retention, tenure, 
or other condition of employment at the University 
of any parent, child, spouse, sibling, parent-in-law, 
sibling-in-law, child-in-law, or stepchild of such 
officer or employee, or supervise the performance of 
any such person except under such circumstances as 
the President of the University may determine as 
warranting waiver of this prohibition in the best 
interests of the University. 

Appropriate records shall be made respecting all 
decisions and actions subject to this policy and 
the President of the University is hereby authorized 
to make and publish such guidelines and interpretations 
as to him may seem necessary and desirable to carry 
into effect this policy. 

Next, the Chairman gave a short review of the Marine 
recruitment incident which took place at the Boston campus earlier 
in December. The Executive Committee feels that a Reaffirmation of 
the "Open Campus" Policy is necessary in this situation.

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees reaffirms its position 
of December 18, 1967, with regard to maintaining 
a climate for the free exchange of ideas at the 
University; also, specifically, within the laws 
of the Commonwealth affecting free access to public 
property by all law-abiding citizens, to reaffirm 
that the campuses of the University of Massachusetts 
are open to the conduct of legitimate public business 
including interviews for student job placement pur- 
poses by private commercial and industrial organizations 
and by agencies of the federal government. 

William L. Rawn, III, has been appointed Assistant Sec- 
retary of the University. President Wood and Secretary McCartney 
are recommending that he be elected an Assistant Secretary of the 
Board of Trustees. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To name William L. Rawn, III who was recently 

appointed Assistant Secretary of the University, 
to the position of an Assistant Secretary of the 
Board of Trustees. 

Chairman Healey and other members of the Board have dis- 
cussed at length proposed responses to (1) the letter from the 
UM/Amherst Committee of Concern and (2) the request for a Board of 
Trustees position on the 1966 AAUP Statement of Governance. The 
Chairman pointed out that proposed responses had been circulated to 
the Board, and he requested Board authorization to send out the pro- 
posed responses personally to the individuals who had requested them 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Chairman Healey, on behalf of the 

Board of Trustees, to send a response (Doc. T72-035 ) 
personally to (1) the letter from the UM/Amherst 
Committee of Concern and to (2) the request for a 
Board position regarding the 1966 AAUP Statement on 
Governance (Doc. T72-036 ) , said responses to be sent 
to the Chairman of the Committee of Concern and to 
the Secretary of the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst, as 
appropriate. 

Chairman Troy presented the report of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy. The first item was a request for 
the Establishment of the Title, Faculty Research Associate, Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts , as a designation for a faculty member of 
another recognized college or university engaged in conducting or 
cooperating in research activities on the UM/Amherst campus. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish the title Faculty Research Associate, 
University of Massachusetts, as a designation in- 
tended primarily for a person who holds a faculty 
rank of assistant professor or higher at another 
recognized college or university and who would 
thereby obtain affiliation, with or without com- 
pensation, with a recognized department, program, 
institute, or center of the University for the 
purpose of conducting or cooperating in research 
activities under the sponsorship of said unit. 

The Chairman reported that the study of Residential 
Colleges and Living-Learning Programs was continuing and that he 
planned to pursue this matter vigorously. The Committee recognizes 
that the human dimension of a college experience is very important. 



Chairman Troy requested that the Board approve the title, 
"Teaching Fellow" for the at the Medical School. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the title of Teaching Fellow at the 
Medical School, UM/Worcester. 

Mr. Troy next raised the issue of the proposed College 
of Public and Community Service, UM/Boston , College III. This will 
be a program which combines liberal arts with social service work. 
The Chairman feels that this is a very important decision involving 
a College of some 2500 students, a unit much larger in enrollment 
than many colleges throughout New England. He pointed out that there 
are few guidelines to evaluate such an undertaking and said that sue! 
questions as counseling, the role of outside "practical" faculty, 
and the need to avoid wasteful duplication with the state and com- 
munity college systems were all important factors in the decision 
to pursue the College III experiment. The Committee has decided to 
establish a modest program in the fall of 1972. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the next stage in the development of 

College III, UM/Boston, which would take the form 
of detailed curricula and program planning and the 
recruitment of a limited number of exceptionally 
qualified faculty, with the view of initiating a 
pilot program in the fall of 1972. 

It was further 

VOTED : To authorize not more than seven faculty 

positions, including the designation of a Dean 
for College III, UM/Boston, at the present time 
and to ask that a detailed description of courses 
and programs be presented to the President and

all levels prior to any contractual commitments 
as well as any transfers of present faculty in 
Colleges I and II. 

Next Chairman Troy presented a proposal to establish a 
Department of Linguistics at UM/ Amherst. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish a Department of Linguistics at 
the Amherst campus of the University of 
Massachusetts. 

In the absence of Chairman Haigis, Trustee Crowley pre- 
sented the report of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 

Mr. Crowley explained that negotiations were continuing 
with the Syrian Antiochal Church regarding its property adjacent to 
the Medical School in the City of Worcester and that, based on 
appraisals required by Commonwealth statute, the Committee had sug- 
gested an upper ceiling figure of $57,000 as a fair purchase price. 
Also, he pointed out, there is being introduced in the legislature 
a bill to authorize the Commonwealth to purchase this property. 
However, he suggested that the Medical School be authorized to con- 
tinue its negotiations. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Dean of the Medical School 
to continue negotiations for the Syrian 
Antiochal Church property in the City of 
Worcester, at or below the averaged appraisal 
figure of $57,000. 

Trustee Crowley pointed out that the Committee had heard 
from UM/Boston Planning Officer O'Brien about progress on buildings 
at Columbia Point. Mr. O'Brien will continue to keep the Committee 
informed of progress as the physical plant develops there. 

Chairman Healey announced with regret- -after receiving an 
important telephone message-- that he would have to leave the meeting 
He asked and obtained the Board's informal approval on two items: 

1. A letter expressing on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees their formal thanks to the Committee on the 
Future University for a very useful and thoughtful 
report; with thanks going also to Dr. Alden, Peter 
Edelman and the staff. 

2. Since this was Commissioner Frechette's last 
meeting before assuming his new responsibilities at

Children's Hospital, Mr. Healey expressed deep 
appreciation for Doctor Frechette's long and 
loyal service as a member of the Board of Trustees 
and proposed to send him a letter of formal thanks. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize Chairman Healey to extend formal 

appreciation on behalf of the Board of Trustees 
to the Future University Committee, together 
with its Chairman and staff for submitting a 
very useful and thoughtful report. 

Chairman Pumphret presented the report of the Finance Com- 
mittee. He noted that his Committee had given extensive review to 
revised rental rates and to the establishment of a revised security 
ieposit system at University Building Authority Project 13 (North 
/illage Apartments) . 

After brief dicsussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That, effective September 1, 1972, the rental 
rates for University of Massachusetts Building 
Authority Project #13 (North Village Apartments) shall, 
contingent on adoption of the rental schedule set forth 
below by the University of Massachusetts Building Author 
ity, be established as follows: 

$150 per month-single bedroom apartment 

$170 per month-double bedroom apartment 

subject to approval by the appropriate Federal 

body charged with establishing rental rate guidelines. 

It was also 

VOTED : That, effective December 1, 1971, a security 
deposit equivalent to one month's rent shall 
be required of each lessee in University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority Project #13 
(North Village Apartments) , payable to the 
University according to the terms, conditions 
and convenants stipulated in the University of 
Massachusetts Married Student Housing Lease 
Agreement (Doc. T72-020 ) , said increase in the 
security deposit to be subject to approval by 
the appropriate Federal body charged with 
establishing guidelines pertinent to this matter. 

Chairman Pumphret then pointed out that, under the new 
state law, an interest-earning trust fund in which security deposits 
are placed must be created for monies held for a period of more than 
one year. Therefore, it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : That security deposits within the purview of 

Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 186, Section 
15B, as amended, required of residents of the 
University of Massachusetts Building Authority 
Project #13 (North Village Apartments) shall be 
deposited in an interest-earning account which 
shall be called "North Village Security Deposit/ 
Amherst Trust Fund", to be invested in such a 
manner that the management of said North Village 
complies with Chapter 186, Section 16 B of 
Massachusetts General Laws, which stipulates in 
part, "A landlord of residential real property 
who holds a security deposit pursuant to this 
section for a period in excess of one year from 
the commencement of the term of tenancy shall, 
beginning with the first day after the expiration 
of such year, pay interest at the rate of five 
per cent per year, payable to the tenant at the 
end of each year, " said earned interest to be 
deposited in an account separate from the principal 
for the purpose of interest income payments to the 
tenants as required by law. 

Chairman Pumphret pointed out that new fees were required 
for the parking garage so that it could become self-liquidating. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That this Board recommends to the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority the adoption of 
the following fee schedules for the Campus Center 
Parking Garage, known as the Eleventh Project of 
the Authority, effective on January 1, 1972, or as 
soon thereafter as the proper approval has been 
secured from the appropriate Federal body: 



PARKING GARAGE FEES 



Daily Rate : 



All cars: 15<: per hour 

75c maximum for the first 12 hours 
$1.50 maximum for 24 hours 

Fixed daily rate ($1.00 per day - hotel guests only) 

Monthly Rates : 

Students, faculty and staff: $15 per month 
(inside lower level) 

Students, faculty and staff: $10 per month 
(outside rooftop level) 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Chairman Pumphret stated that the Committee realized that 
the garage was only part of the ever-growing traffic problem at 
UM/ Amherst. He felt that the traffic control problems at Amherst 
were reaching a critical stage. The Committee urged that something 
be done immediately. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That, in consideration of the increasing seriousness 

of traffic control and parking conditions at UM/Amherst 
together with financial and manpower requirements 
attendant thereto, Vice Chancellor Campion is in- 
structed to arrange for the presentation of an effective 
total parking and traffic control at UM/Amherst plan 
for consideration by the Finance Committee. 

Chairman Pumphret then pointed out that several budgetary 
transfers between subsidiary accounts had been requested. These 
were to be consolidated into a single vote. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the transfer between subsidiary accounts 

of $323,400 from account 01 to account 02, UM/Amherst. 

The transfer voted above will provide for 
the following: 

$30,000 for sick leave replacements; $26,500 
for sabbatical leave replacements; $163,500 
for additional overtime requirements; also 
$103,400 for temporary positions in the Offices 
of the President and the Secretary. 

To approve the transfer of $1,030 from account 01 to 
account 02 in the Office of the President (account 
7410-0000). 

To approve the transfer of $186,000 from account 03 
to account 13 in the Office of the President for the 
Disadvantaged Student Program.

Amherst and Boston campuses. She stated that there was a need at 
this time to involve the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee 
in deliberations of this pan-campus study group and proposed that a 
joint committee meeting be held in the near future. ' Also, she 
pointed out that the immediate needs of the students should not be 
overlooked when a broader counseling program is contemplated on both 
campuses. Mrs. Rowland added that her committee was particularly 
appreciative of the hard and dedicated work performed by the Presi- 
dent's Working Group on University Counseling, Advising and Support 
Services. 

President Wood, as chairman pro tern in Chairman Healey's 
absence, next presented a personnel action establishing the Classi- 
fication of Position Title for the post of Assistant Secretary of the 
University of Massachusetts. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That, in accordance with the provisions of 

Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962, the position 
title in the Professional Staff detailed in 
Document T72-024 , which document is herewith 
attached to and made a part of these minutes, 
is classified at a weekly salary rate specified 
after the title of position, subject to sub- 
sequently being amended, revised, added to, or 
repealed by the Board of Trustees under the 
provisions of said Chapter 648. 

It was further 

VOTED : That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the provisions of Chapter 648 of tHie Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific weekly 
salary rate which shall not be changed except by 
vote of the Board of Trustees and such classification 
shall not be designated by any job group number or 
grade. 

Reporting for Trustee Gordon, who had to leave the meeting 
early, President Wood announced that the only item from the Board of 
Higher Education was the announcement that Chancellor Edward Moore 
had resigned. The BHE is currently considering new persons for that 
position. 

President Wood next raised the issue of merit salary in- 
crements. He referred the Board to his memorandum on that subject 
(Doc. T72-037 ) , dated December 27, 1971. He pointed out that this 
was, in part, an interim measure to deal with the annual problem of 
merit increments, while at the same time recognizing two very impor- 
tant uncertainties affecting the matter: the Phase II federal program 
and controls; also, the Commonwealth's cost-of-living plan. By 
adopting the Administration's proposal, the Board could approve the 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

award of a fixed percentage of increment monies at the present time 
and defer the award of the balance appropriated until there is some 
greater resolution or better understanding of the impact of Phase II 
and the state's cost-of-living plan. 

Professor James Broderick, UM/Boston, urged that the pro- 
posed University administrative procedure on merit increments not be 
placed into effect in light of two problems: (1) the personnel com- 
mittees in various departments on the campuses have just finished 
their personnel reviews and the new policy would substantially alter 
their decisions; and (2) the proposed new University policy represen 
such a major change in the procedure for providing merit increments 
that consultation with the various faculties is in order. 

President Wood said that he had no objection to delaying 
a vote on this matter for a month or two. However, he pointed out 
that the present vote in no way changes the basic allocation. He 
felt it might be wise to go forward with this first phase of the 
merit program so that some persons would obtain increments at the 
present time. He offered this program, he said, as a means of pro- 
viding flexibility to the campuses and did not intend to complicate 
the work of the campus personnel committees. 

Professor Wellman, UM/Amherst, indicated that he agreed 
entirely with Professor Broderick' s remarks. He said that he 
thought the Amherst Faculty Senate would see this as a major depar- 
ture from previous policies. 

Professor Ludtke, UM/Amherst, asked why the Board of 
Trustees could not proceed with the full award of annual merit 
increments to the various campuses now just as they had done in the 
past. He pointed out that the legislature had already appropriated 
monies for this purpose in the current budget. Trustee Pumphret 
replied that the Board of Trustees had indicated its unhappiness witfi 
the timing of the merit increments in near conjunction with cost-of- 
living increases time and again. He added that this was a problem 
recognized by the Board and that criticisms about any proposed plans 
should not be directed at the President's Office. 

Professor Ludtke responded that the merit increments are 
viewed by the faculty as a substitute for the step-rate system. 

President Wood pointed out that the step-rate system is 
now such old history that it is hard to justify any of the current 
programs on the basis of a long-forgotten pay system. He pointed 
out that contemporary circumstances require change. The public, for 
example, does not view the merit increase system as a substitute for 
automatic step-rate increases. 

Professor Wellman urged the President and the Trustees to 
take advantage of every opportunity to increase communication with 
the faculties of the various campuses in regard to major policy 
changes.

After discussion it was agreed that adoption of any merit 
salary increments would be delayed pending further analysis by the 
Board of Trustees. 

Professor Burroughs, representative of the UM/Amherst 
Faculty Seftate, complained that his request to address the Board, 
together with Faculty Senate Secretary Wellman, had not received the 
courtesy of a response from Secretary McCartney. He requested 
immediate copies of the Board's responses to the Committee of Concern 
and to the 1966 AAUP Statement on Governance. 

Trustee Crowley then pointed out that the vote was to 
authorize the Chairman of the Board of Trustees to write letters on 
behalf of the Board of Trustees to the specific persons asking for 
the responses--Dean Morris and Secretary Wellman. President Wood 
re-emphasized that Dean Morris had explicitly asked the Board to 
send the letter to him. The President did not feel that it was 
appropriate to deviate from that request. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:45 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



The President reported that the Board is being asked to 
act on three tenure cases for UM/ Amherst (Doc. T72-Q46 ) and the 
position classification related to appointment of Peter Edelman as 
Vice President for Policy and Plans in the Office of the President 
■(Doc. T72-055 ) . He referred to the quarterly report which contains 
information on University-wide personnel actions implemented under 
the delegation of powers contained in Document T71-115 . 

The President continued that he and Chairman Healey have 
received a number of communications regarding Mrs. Salzman. However 
it is clear that the Board's vote of December 28, 1971, establishing 
a conflict-of-interest policy (Doc. T72-029 ) together with a delega- 
tion of certain personnel appointment authority to the Chancellors 
and the Dean of the Medical School in May, 1971 (Doc. T71-115 ) per- 
mits the UM/Boston administration to proceed without any Board action 
in her case. 

Dr. Wood then read a memorandum (Doc. T72-057 attached) 
addressed to him from Chancellor Broderick stating that Mrs. Salzman 
case has been reviewed and that, in line with the recommendation of 
the Physics Department dated December 14, 1970, Chancellor Broderick 
is offering her a position (Doc. T72-058 attached) as an Associate 
Professor of Physics. Her employment would start January 31, 1972 
and extend through the period ending August 31, 1973. The President 
stated that he subscribed to this action. 

A list of persons wishing to be recognized on the above 
matter having been provided to the Acting Chairman by Secretary 
McCartney, Trustee Crowley then called upon the following people to 
speak: Dr. Nancy M. Tooney and Dr. Marian Lowe, on behalf of more 
than 150 signatories of a petition protesting alleged discrimination 
toward women scientists and, particularly, toward Dr. Freda Salzman; 
Dr. Allen Weinrub, representing 53 Boston University faculty signa- 
tories to a similar petition; Mrs. Patricia Cap Ian, representing 
NOW (National Organization for Women); and, from UM/Boston, Dr. James 
Whitney and Dr. George Salzman. 

Mr. Crowley replied affirmatively to a request that the 
records in the Office of the Secretary be open to Dr. Salzman herself 
inasmuch as Trustee records are always open to the public. He also 
indicated that the Board is always willing to hear any points of 
view which may be helpful in considering future policies for the 
University. 

Professor George Salzman spoke vehemently for more than 
30 minutes on the chronology and other facets of the appointment 
(and later nonreappointment) of Dr. Freda Salzman to the faculty of 
the Department of Physics, UM/Boston. During the course of his 
remarks, Dr. George Salzman directed the following questions to the 
Board of Trustees: 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

1. What vote of the Board mandated the action of dismissal 
of Freda Salzman after four and one-half years based on 
University policy prohibiting "contemporaneous" appoint- 
ment with the same department of a husband and wife? 

2. When initially appointed, why was the offer for full time 
with tenure to him and part time without tenure to her 
instead of vice versa? 

3. In how many cases of dual appointments of couples within 
the same department did the husband get the part-time 
appointment and his wife the full-time one? 

He demanded that the Board obtain the information which it needed to 
make fair and equitable settlement of this matter at this meeting. 
He declared that Chancellor Broderick had denied access to allegations 
cited by ex-Dean Gagnon that the Salzmans were guilty of nepotic 
practices. This, said Dr. Salzman, denied them the opportunity to 
confront the allegations against them. He repeated his demand for 
action at this meeting. 

Acting Chairman Crowley thanked Dr. Salzman for his pre- 
sentation and reminded him that the Board had statutory obligations 
to act upon other matters on the agenda. 

At the conclusion of Dr. Salzman' s remarks, supporters in 
attendance broke into applause and shouting which continued for an 
extended period, finally settling into a continuous loud, rhythmic, 
clapping pattern. At this point, it was the conclusion of the Act- 
ing Chairman, the President, and the Secretary that this public 
meeting of the Board of Trustees, operating under Chapter 626 of the 
General Laws, was being deliberately disrupted for an extended perioc! 
of indefinite duration, and that further pursuit of the normal business 
of the Board as set forth in the published agenda would not be pos- 
sible. Acting Chairman Crowley then called for a single, blanket 
vote of the Trustees assenting to the enactment of all votes recom- 
mended to the Board of Trustees for action by the several Committees 
reporting to this meeting as detailed in the minutes of meetings of 
the following Committees: the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy meeting of January 17, 1972; the Executive Committee meeting 
of January 21, 1972; and the Committee on Buildings and Grounds meet- 
ing of January 20, 1972, all of said minutes and recommendations having 
been circulated previously to the Trustees and read by them prior tc 
the convening of this meeting. Approval would thereby be given also 
to the enactment of five items recommended to the Board of Trus tees 
for action prior to 2:00 p.m., this date, as follows: (1) award of 
Graduate Degrees as of February 1, 1972; (2) the Personnel Actions

A figure of $1,254,100 (all but $37,150)of the trans 
fer from Account 01 was projected last October in the 
Amherst Operating Budget approved by the Board. The 
resulting transfers were occasioned by inadequate 
appropriations in accounts other than 01 and are 
necessary to maintain current levels of operation. 
The $37,150 represents the requirement of an additional 
$9,150 into 03 and $28,000 into 16, the latter for 
rental of Arnold House.

Alliance; also, Dr. Freda Salzman and friends.

sented for approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the Board 
of Trustees held on January 28, 1972. 

Invited to comment, President Wood stated that the most 
important issue before the Board in terms of its effect upon the 
entire University is the 1972-73 budget, which has been drastically 
reduced by the Executive Department to about $72,000,000 from the 
$88,000,000 requested. He called it a stand-still budget. Although 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

planning to increase enrollment, the University must, at the same 
time, curtail faculty appointments, department innovations, and fin- 
ancial aid to needy students. The severe cuts, Dr. Wood continued, 
endanger the quality of public education in the Commonwealth along 
with the University's standing in the academic community. He 
pledged his continuing effort to sustain all areas threatened by 
reductions as an obligation to students and faculty. 

Acting Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, reported that studi 
are underway on the implications of the Governor's budget cut on the 
Amherst campus. He also mentioned the second meeting of a group of 
University and community leaders to determine programs to make bette 
use of resources from UM/Amherst as related to the Future Development 
of Western Massachusetts. In addition, various committees (composed 
of members from the Undergraduate, Graduate, and Faculty Senate, the 
Administration, and faculty and staff) are studying in detail the 
Future University Report. Their conclusions are due in report form 
in about six weeks. Dr. Bromery mentioned also a recent meeting of 
persons involved in the College of Agriculture Extension Service 
program in nutrition at the South End Settlement House in Boston in 
Suffolk County and an agreement with the University of Helsinki for 
an exchange program effective in September 1972. 

Chancellor Broderick, UM/Boston, emphasized the negative 
impact of the current budget slash on the Boston campus coupled with 
an anticipated increase of 800 students (17 percent) . 

The Chancellor reported that the division into Colleges I 
and II has been accomplished. Progress is being made on the instru- 
ments of governance for the individual colleges. A proposed constitt 
tion for the University Senate at UM/Boston is also in preparation. 

For UM/Worcester , Dean Soutter expressed deep concern 
about the revised budget's effect on the Medical School with its 
anticipated increase in enrollment of 40 percent with an additional 
20 courses. He then outlined the drastic adjustments in all areas 
which would be required if the Teaching Hospital is lost: restricted 
clinical teaching facilities in area hospitals, redesigning of pre- 
sent construction with loss of Federal aid, reduction of the curric 
ulum to a two-year program. 

Trustee Troy, reporting for the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, recommended the creation of the Title of Teaching 



Associate at UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-064 ) . He noted that this will 
give an opportunity for advancement, with a corresponding increase 
in salary, to graduate students who have shown exceptional ability 
as Teaching Assistants. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the creation of the Title of Teaching 
Associate at UM/Amherst.

effective on and after February 1, 1972, as 
detailed in Document T72-077 . 

It was further 



On 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : That the Classification of Position Titles under 
the provisions of Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962 
shall be fixed in a weekly salary range from a 
minimum to a maximum or fixed at a specific weekly 
salary rate which shall not be changed except by 
vote of the Board of Trustees and such classification 
shall not be designated by any job group number or 
grade. 

It was then 

VOTED : That, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 648 
of the Acts of 1962, the Position Title in the Pro- 
fessional Staff presented to this meeting in Document 
T72-077 is classified at a weekly salary rate spec- 
ified after the title of the position in the schedule 
subject to subsequently being amended, revised, added 
to, or repealed by the Board of Trustees under the 
provisions of said Chapter 648. 

Having completed the agenda items before the Board, Chair- 
man Healey invited statements from spokesmen of the groups which 
had requested to address the Trustees. 

Speaking for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, who had 
previously interrupted the meeting to demand that they be heard at 
once, John Hopkins, a student at UM/Boston and a Marine veteran, 
petitioned on behalf of 700 signatories that military recruiting be 
banned from all campuses of the University. He claimed support from 
the UM/Boston University Senate and the Placement Office, since both 
have taken a stand against recruiting of any kind on the campus. 
Replying to an inquiry from Trustee Sandwen, however, Mr. Hopkins 
stated that his own concern is only with recruiting by the military. 
He referred to the Trustee vote of December 28, 1971, reaffirming 
an open-campus policy for the University and urged that the Board 
challenge the constitutionality of any law denying Federal assistance 
to a college and/or its students because of restricted access to 
its campus. 

Trustee Shaler asked that the University counsel investigate: 
the situation and report at the next meeting. Mr. Hopkins cited 
numerous instances of inhumane treatment of civilians in Vietnam 
witnessed personally by him. He declared that immediate action must 
be taken to help end the war. 

Chairman Healey replied that the Board must have time to 
consider whether or not it wishes to make any change in its previous 
vote. 

Michael Levi, as spokesman for the UM/Boston-Dorchester 
Alliance, expressed concern over alleged speculation and rent 
increases gradually forcing residents of the Dorchester area to 
leave their homes. He presented five demands to the Trustees:

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

1. The people of Dorchester and the students of 
UM/Boston must have decisive control over the UM/ 
Boston involvement in Dorchester. 

2. Student voice and University involvement in 
Dorchester must not be limited to representation 
on committees or the University Senate, but must 
be democratically open to all interested students. 

3. There must be an immediate public commitment 
by the Trustees and Administration to accept and 
implement the decisions of the Dorchester community 
and UM/Boston students on student housing, including 
if necessary the construction of housing on the 
Columbia Point campus. 

4. The solution to the student-housing crisis in 
Dorchester must not involve taking already-existing 
housing, specifically the Columbia Point housing 
projects. 

5. The Columbia Point campus must not open until 
adequate student housing is present in Dorchester. 

President Wood questioned Mr. Levi on the supporting data 
for these demands. He suggested that the Alliance refer to Vice 
Chancellor Hamilton's survey of the Dorchester area together with 
the student response and the community development program now under 
way. The President also pressed for a response on whether the 
speakers on behalf of this petition had knowledge of the recent 
vacancy and relocation statistics for the area in question. The 
answer was negative. 

Chairman Healey then invited Dr. Freda Salzman to present 
her petition to the Board. Mrs. Salzman read a prepared statement 
(Doc. T72-088 ) in which she requested that the Committee on Faculty 
and Educational Policy hold open hearings on her case, particularly 
regarding the alleged secret allegations against her and her claim 
for full compensation for alleged past discriminatory treatment. 

Dr. Allen Weinrub , representing 53 members of the Boston 
University faculty interested in Mrs. Salzman' s case, stated that 
there are three issues involved: (1) a clear case of discrimination 
against Freda Salzman when she was hired, (2) a supposed change of 
policy, and (3) a Board not responsive to anyone. Chairman Healey 
detailed the process such a case follows before it comes before the 
Trustees. Chancellor Broderick stated that the present offer of an 
appointment for three-and-one-half years provides a tenure review by 
the Physics Department in 1974 and arbitration for back pay before 
a disinterested group. President Wood stressed that the basic unit 
for maintaining academic integrity is the department and that the 
Board is composed essentially of nonacademic people. (Doc. T72-097 ) 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. George Salzman reiterated demands he made at the 
January 28, 1972, meeting of the Board. He asked Mr. Healey to 
direct Chancellor Broderick to make available to Freda Salzman the 
documents containing allegations against her. Dr. Wood stressed 
that the allegations had not influenced the Physics Department's 
decision not to recommend tenure at this time; also, that the nepo- 
tism policy which had previously affected the Salzmans had been 
applied impartially in other similar cases. 

Replying to a question from Trustee Sandwen, Mrs. Salzman 
stated that she intends to accept Chancellor Broderick' s latest 
offer, but with certain qualifications. Chairman Healey assured 
her that acceptance will in no way prejudice any claims already made 

Trustee Sandwen then moved a charge to the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy that it hold an open hearing within 
a month on Dr. Salzman' s grievances of the 1967-69 period. The 
motion was seconded and opened for discussion. Trustee Troy, Chair- 
man of that Committee, indicated that he would like to meet with 
Trustee Healey and President Wood within a few days to define the 
terms of the hearing. Chairman Healey agreed and stated that Mrs. 
Salzman will also be consulted on the determination of the issues 
and other arrangements. Mr. Sandwen indicated agreement with this 
procedure. Chairman Healey noted no objection from other members 
of the Board. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:45 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the formal meeting of the Board was 
convened by Chairman Healey at 2:10 p.m. 

The minutes of the meeting of February 23, 1972, were pre- 
sented for approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the Board 
of Trustees held on February 23, 1972. 

Mr. Healey announced a special meeting of the Board to be 
held on Wednesday, April 5, at 12:30 p.m. in Boston for the purpose 
Df interviewing the three candidates who have been recommended by the 
Search Committee for a Chancellor, UM/Amherst. He extended the deep 
appreciation of the Board to the entire Search Committee, and partic- 
ularly to its Chairman, Glen Gordon, for their diligent efforts in 
making an extensive search as requested in October by the Trustees. 

President Wood turned immediately to the tuition policy, a 
subject of increasingly deep concern for over a year, not only to 
the University, but also to the academic community, nationally. He 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

loted that trustees of state and community colleges are being forced 
toward increasingly higher tuition. Studies undertaken by the 
President's Office (DOC. T72-100 ) have reached the following major 
onclusions: (1) the need for low-cost, high-quality public educa- 
tion is greater than ever before; (2) no responsible increase in 
tuition can provide genuine tax relief or be considered a major 
source of public revenue; and (3) any change in undergraduate 
tuition for Massachusetts residents must be accompanied by assurance 
af sufficient student financial aid so that qualified students are 
lot excluded for financial reasons. 

Dr. Wood said he would ask later at this meeting for action 
jy the Board to increase tuition for out-of-state and graduate stu- 
ients on a two-step basis over the next two years. He indicated his 
reluctance to move in this direction, emphasizing that all adjust- 
ments must be based on educational and not fiscal policy. 

Reporting for UM/Worcester, Associate Dean Stockwell noted 
that progress is being made on contracts for construction of the 
Teaching Hospital, which has now been authorized by the Secretary of 
Transportation and Construction. 

Trustee Haigis then reported for the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds which had met immediately previous to this meeting. 

In connection with a proposed agreement with the Western 
Massachusetts Electric Company for electric power (DOC. T72-094), the 
Committee recommended deferring action pending clarification of 
certain questions. It was, therefore, moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : That Vice Chancellor Thomas B. Campion, UM/ Amherst, 
be authorized to negotiate further with the Western 
Massachusetts Electric Company on a proposed con- 
tract for electric power at UM/ Amherst in line with 
certain questions raised in this matter by the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds.

the Committee s recommendation is that it be granted contingent on a

ae no interference with the incoming signal from Radio Station WGBH-

VOTED : That conditional upon completion of a fully pro- 
fessional engineering survey providing full

mendations of the aforementioned professional 
engineering survey and, subject to confirmation 
by University legal counsel, with the terms 
and conditions as set forth in the attached 
License (DOC. T72-066). 

Mr. Haigis reported that the final item considered by the 
Committee was the offer by H.E.W. of Federal Surplus Property con- 
sisting of the former Westover Communications Annex No. 3 located 
near the Notch south of UM/Amherst (DOC. T72-099). To allow time 
for a feasibility study, it is recommended that the Board authorize 
filing of an expression of interest by the closing date (April 13, 
1972). On motion duly seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Donald W. Madsen, Administrative 
Assistant, Office of the Treasurer, to file 
with H.E.W. a notice of interest in the former 
Westover Communications Annex No. 3 and to request 
that a feasibility study be undertaken by the 
UM/Amherst administration for consideration of 
acquisition of this site by the University of 
Massachusetts. 

Trustee Delegate Gordon to the Board of Higher Education 
reported that, on March 17, Patrick McCarthy was elected Chancellor 
of the Board of Higher Education. Discussions on budget procedure 
have been underway with Secretary of Educational Affairs Cronin. The 
BHE is also concerned with the tuition problem and will be interested 
in acting on this issue taken by the University and other segments 
of higher education. Mr. Gordon also reported that the Board is 
building a staff to coordinate the various efforts in the area of 
Continuing Education in Public Service. 

Trustee Sandwen was invited by Chairman Healey to present 
a motion, already passed by the Student Senate, UM/Amherst, designed 
to give the Amherst campus Student Court systems greater flexibility 
in dealing with shoplifting in the Campus Center (DOC. T72-101). 
The long-range plan is to develop a system whereby the penalties may 
be in the form of various community services rather than monetary 
fines. Mr. Johnston, Director of Security, UM/Amherst, noted that 
the Campus Center provides its own security coverage and has recourse 
to criminal prosecution through the campus Security Department. How 
ever, most cases are referred to the Snudent Courts, which may, 
among other things, recommend expulsion from the University. This 
extreme consequence, although posted outside the store, has dis- 
couraged prosecution of small thefts, which occur at the rate of 
about 20 per week. After further discussion, including confirmation 
that the vote will apply only to thefts at the University Store, it 
was moved, seconded, and 



TRUSTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To amend the Student Code of Conduct, UM/Amherst, 
to add a new section H to Part II to read: 

H. Fines - The Student Judiciary shall be 
empowered to levy a fine of up

article unlawfully removed from 
the University Store at the Campus

fines will be applied back to 
the University Store to cover its 
deficits, 

also to amend Part II, Section E, Item 5, to read: 

(5) require payment of fines, except as provided 
in Paragraph H, infra . 

Vice Chancellor Bromery requested the Trustees to confirm 
the appointment of police officers for UM/Amherst as required by 
the General Laws. It was, therefore, moved, seconded, and

enforcement of said rules and regulations (i.e. 
for the control, movement and parking of vehicles 
on the campus of the University and on other land 
of the University) and throughout University 
property shall have the powers of police officers

Dr. Bromery also noted the following promotions to the 
rank of Sergeant in the Police Department, effective February 20, 
1972: Robert Joyce, Henry Rogala, John T. Taylor, and Richard 
Wesoloski. 

Trustee Gordon then presented a proposal for establishment 
of a Special Trustee Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics at 
UM/Amherst. He noted that it has been some time since the Board had 
examined this area and that many dynamic changes have been occurring 
nationally. Mr. Sandwen volunteered to serve on this committee, 
stating that his experience on the Search Committee for a new 
Director of Athletics had increased his awareness of the wide diver- 
sity of goals for achievement in this area. Trustee Crowley reminded

the Board that there had formerly been a Trustee Committee on 

Athletics which had been effective in developing one of the finest 

athletic programs in the East on the Amherst campus. It was moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED : That a Special Committee on Intercollegiate 

Athletics be appointed by the Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees to examine intercollegiate 
athletic policies at UM/ Amherst. 

At Secretary McCartney's request, it was then moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED : To elect William L. Rawn, III, Assistant Secretary 
of the University, as Assistant Secretary, Board 
of Trustees, effective immediately, for a term 
of office extending until the Annual Meeting of 
the Board of Trustees, February 1973. 

President Wood asked for authority to classify some 335 
positions which require adjustment to implement the merit increase 
t^recommendations . It was, therefore, moved, seconded, and 



Tuition Policy

VOTED ; To delegate authority to the President to classify 
those professional positions for which a specific 
weekly salary rate or a limited weekly salary 
range presently exists solely as required to per- 
mit the implementation, effective January 30, 1972, 
of the merit increase recommendations of the 
President, the Chancellors, and the Dean of the 
Medical School. 

President Wood then presented his motion increasing tuitior 
for out-of-state students and in-state graduate students. Trustee 
Sandwen commented that an affirmative vote would not (1) affect the 
status of tuition waivers for international students as already 
guaranteed by the Board or (2) affect reciprocal agreements with . 
other states and universities abroad. Dr. Wood added that the 
Administration's objective has been to keep tuition as low as possible 
arid unrelated to a sliding scale of income; however, there is no 
guarantee that there will be no further increases. 

Professor Burroughs, UM/Amherst, referring to a resolution 
voted unanimously by the Faculty Senate on March 2, 1972 (Doc. T72- 
102 t copies of which were distributed before the meeting), reaffirmec 



the Faculty Senate's position on the principle of retaining the 
present level of $200 per annum for in-state undergraduate students 
He stated that the President's motion was compatible with the 
Senate's action and had his endorsement. It was then moved, secondec 
and 

VOTED : To adopt in principle the following tuition 

schedule for out-of-state and graduate students, 
pending final comment within the University, 
by the Boards of the State and Community Colleges, 
and by the Board of Higher Education:

Chairman Healey then announced that this is Trustee Sand- 
wen's last public meeting as a member of the Board, since the Student 
Senate will elect its next President on April 5. He commended Mr. 
Sandwen on his contribution to the work of the Board as a "strong 
advocate of his own constituency, the student body," noting that he 
has "maintained a broad-gauged view of the problems of the Universitj 
as a whole." Mr. Healey extended to Mr. Sandwen the Board's 
appreciation and best wishes for the future and indicated that he is 
planning to designate him as an "unpaid consultant" on the special 
athletics committee. 

As Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy, Mr. Troy reported that he and Vice President Edelman have 
met with Drs. Freda and George Salzman to review Mrs. Salzman's 
grievance case. Mrs. Salzman is basically interested in clearing 
her name of certain allegations and has asked that the Committee 
meet and discuss her record in detail. Trustee Troy stated this 
will be done as soon as possible in executive session in line with a 
written statement he has received from her. Mrs. Salzman has 
reserved her right for an open hearing in the event she is not satis- 
fied with the results of this meeting. 

Mr. John Clifford, who had previously requested to address 
the Board, affirmed the position of the Vietnam Veterans Against the 
War on closing the UM/Boston campus to recruiting of any kind. He 
asked where the Board stands on this issue and what type of action 
it is planning to take. Chancellor Broderick stated that a committee 
of the UM/Boston Senate has been appointed to determine overall 
opinion on military and other recruiting on the Boston campus, the 
legal implications on federal funds, and the possibility of separate 
decisions for the Amherst and Boston campuses. The results of this 
study will lead to a recommendation of policy to the Board. 

Trustee Shaler stressed his concern that this might be 
only the first of a series of issues to be brought before the Board 
for specific action and urged that the question be considered from a 
philosophical rather than a legal viewpoint. Chairman Healey con- 
firmed that the so-called "open campus" policy adopted by the Board 
on December 18, 1967, is still in effect. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Healey at 
12:35 p.m. The Chairman indicated that the principal purpose of the 
meeting was to interview candidates for the position of Chancellor 
at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. A method of election 
by secret ballot was outlined. 

The candidates to be interviewed, all recommended by the 
Search Committee for a Chancellor at UM/Amherst were the following: 
Acting Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery, UM/Amherst; Vice Chancellor 
Timothy Healy, CUNY; Vice Chancellor Carlo Golino, University of 
California at Riverside. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To go into executive session for the purpose of 
interviewing the aforementioned candidates and 
discussing their qualifications. 

After extensive interviews of approximately one hour's 
duration with each of the candidates, the Trustees discussed at 
length the qualifications of each individual. President Wood 
reported on the substance of personal interviews he had held with 
each candidate this morning. 

Ballots were then distributed by the Secretary. The 
Trustees voted. Acting Chancellor Bromery was elected to the perma- 
nent Chancellor position. 

On an informal basis, President Wood reported to the 
Trustees that his office, in conjunction with other segments of the 
higher education community in the Commonwealth, was considering the 
recommendation of a $100 increase in in-state tuition to take effect 
over two years ($50, September 1972; $50, September 1973). The 
informal view of the Trustees, without dissent, was that this pro- 
posal is satisfactory; also, that the President should proceed with 



3569

planning on this basis. The intent of the Board of Trustees is to 
give this matter a favorable formal vote in open session at the regu- 
Lar meeting of the Board on April 26, 1972.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Healey announced that the Board had agreed to giv£ 
priority consideration to the three following issues: campus recrui 
ment, continuance of ROTC at UM/ Amherst, and government-sponsored 
research. The University Senate, UM/Boston, and the Faculty and Stu- 
dent Senates, UM/ Amherst, have supplied the Trustees with information 
Various letters and statements have also been circulated to the 
Board, as well as reports of polls and petitions at both campuses. 
(Copies of material circulated and/or presented to the Board are on 
file as a packet in the Office of the Secretary as Doc. T72-140 .) 
The Chancellors were to introduce the subjects, give their own views 
and coordinate the presentations by spokesmen from their respective 
campuses. President Wood was invited to give his comments. 

Dr. Wood expressed concern about the recent escalation of 
the war in Indochina. He referred to his recent conversations with 
Representative O'Neill, House Majority Whip; Senator Brooke, and 
Senator Kennedy (Doc. T72-184 ) . All three men offered an analysis 
of the situation and their proposals for public or legislative action 
Senator Kennedy mentioned the possibility of a national university 
organization to work in Washington during the summer on Senator 
Brooke's proposed legislation that American forces be removed from 
Vietnam and all prisoners of war released by a date certain, August $1. 

President Wood's statement concluded: "There are no easy 
ways to reverse the momentum of this war — as the campuses discovered 
in 1970 when the outrage of the spring gave way to summer dispirit 
and apathy. But I think the actions we may take today can help and 
I hope we find continuing ways and means to work within the national 
political process." 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, stated that it is diffi- 
cult to separate the issues of campus recruitment from government 
research on the Amherst campus. Of the $4,500,000 received by the 
campus in research support — all nonclassified — 20 percent is from 
agencies whose funds are tied to the continuation of military 
recruitment on campus. He has set up an Ad Hoc Committee of the 
Faculty Senate, the Student Senate, and the Graduate Student Senate 
to study the entire recruitment policy. The Chancellor submitted a 
statement (Doc. T72-183 ) recommending temporary suspension of the 
ban on recruiting pending consideration of the recommendations of 
that committee. He also recommended that the President's Office 
investigate the implications and consequences of having different 
policies for each campus. 

Professor Wellman, Secretary of the Faculty Senate, report- 
ed that a Subcommittee of the Emergency Advisory Committee has been 
formed to develop a policy concerning on-campus recruitment by 
September, 1972. The Senate would not want to make a formal state- 
ment until then; however, Mr. Wellman commented that recruitment is 
basically a student concern and should reflect first the desires of 
that group.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Ladd presented the names of proponents submitted 
by invitation of the Student Senate, and representatives of each 
group were invited to speak under certain time limitations: Market- 
ing Club — John Barrows, President; Center for Social Change — Ray 
Kildasas, Mira Marshall, Brad Marcus, and Joe Doucette; ROTC — 
Michael Quirk and Tim Brown. 

Mr. Barrows, President of the Marketing Club, UM/ Amherst, 
distributed, among other material, results of a student poll which 
had been advertised in the Collegian and taken at the Campus Center 
and the School of Business Administration. Although minimal partici- 
pation resulted (666 votes) , over 90 percent were in favor of rein- 
stating all recruitment on the Amherst campus. The consensus was 
that facilities should be available for those students who wish to 
participate in any educational activity. 



Speaking for the Center for Social Change, Mr. Kildasas 
stated that academic freedom is limited by keeping ROTC on campus 
since students have nothing to say about its implementation. Enrol- 
lments are mainly from those who wish to evade the draft or need 
scholarship assistance and have no intention of pursuing a military 
career. He suggested an off-campus location for ROTC, but with con- 
tinued financial aid for fewer students. Mr. Marcus pointed out thai:, 
even though the research contracts are not classified, they are 
associated with the Department of Defense which would be interested 
only in technological military advancement. He proposed substituting 
research on urban poverty, pollution, and minority groups for defense 
research and indicated that the Center would be interested in working 
with the Ad Hoc Committee of the Senates. 

Ms. Marshall (continuing for the Center for Social Change) 
urged banning of recruitment by the military and by industries hold- 
ing war-related contracts. She stressed that this is a state univer- 
sity charged by the General Laws to provide educational programs and 
not to serve as an employment agency. She then questioned the valid- 
ity of both the Ad Hoc Committee and the poll conducted by the 
Marketing Club . 

The final Center for Social Change speaker was Mr. Doucette 
who asked the help of the Board in separating the military from the 
civilian responsibilities of society by breaking off all contact via 
recruiting, ROTC, and research contracts immediately. 

On behalf of the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) , 
Mr. Brown argued that the Army is not responsible for the Vietnam 
War. If a student wishes to choose ROTC and take military courses, 
he should have the opportunity to do so. Removal of ROTC courses 
implies censorship and the possibility of similar action in other 
areas of the curriculum. This training, along with a liberal educa- 
tion, as opposed to West Point, prevents the development of a 
strictly professional army.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chancellor Bromery noted that the ROTC issue first surfaced 
in the Student Senate in 1962 and was brought into the Faculty Senate 
in 1969, where the vote was recently reaffirmed. He outlined the 
following administrative action for the Amherst campus: 

1. Implementation, effective September 1972, of the April 27, 
1972, vote of the Faculty Senate reaffirming its earlier 
vote of November 20, 1969, denying credit for all courses 
taught by Air Force and Army ROTC personnel. 

2. Reflection of this action in current contract negotiations 
with the Air Force and Army ROTC representatives. Continu- 
ing pressure for full reimbursement of institutional costs 
of the Air Force and Army ROTC programs, as recommended by 
the Faculty Senate. 

3. Periodic progress reports on contract negotiations and a 
continuing review of the curriculum of the Department of 
Military and Air Science. 

Professor Burroughs, Faculty Senate representative, referred 
the Trustees to supporting material distributed to them and restated 
the Senate's recommendation for termination of academic credit for 
all courses taught exclusively and independently by the Department 
of Air Science. This has now been effected by Dr. Bromery 's admin- 
istrative action. 

Summarizing the UM/Amherst administration's position, Chan- 
cellor Bromery noted that the Ad Hoc Committee has been instructed to 
work through the entire campus community. He referred to a vote on 
government-sponsored research taken by the Graduate Council on 
December 20, 1970, which was implemented by President Lederle on the 
Amherst campus. Dr. Bromery recommended that the following policy 
now be formally adopted by the Board on a University-wide basis: 

In the light of the educational aims of the University and its 

interests in the free and constructive uses of the information 

derived from its research, it is the policy of the University 
that: 

1. It will enter into a grant or contract only when it has 
freedom to disclose the purpose and scope of the proposed 
research, the methods, and the results of such research: 

a. to permit informed discussion concerning the 
appropriateness of such research within the 
University. 

b. to apprise colleagues in the immediate and 
related disciplines of the nature and impor- 
tance of the work as a potential contribution 
to the disciplines involved. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

2. It will only enter into grants or contracts which do not 
require the approval of any outside person or agency 
prior to the publication or dissemination of the results 
of any research. It does recognize, however, that where 
proprietary data or information has been provided by a 
sponsor, that rights to the use of such proprietary 
material shall be respected. 

3. It will only enter into grants or contracts which permit 
complete freedom to disclose, 

a. the existence of the contract or grant. 

b. the identity of the sponsor, and if a subcontract is 
involved, the identity of the prime sponsor. 

He also proposed that, although the action on ROTC courses is appro- 
priately within the responsibility of the Faculty Senate, given its 
significance, the Board might wish to take formal action. 

Chancellor Broderick, UM/Boston, noted that the escalation 
of the Vietnam war has increased the urgency for action by the 
Board. He stated that the University Senate has recommended the 
following policies: 

1. Prohibition of all research on campus which is directed 
toward the support of military activities. 

The Chancellor commented that he supports this statement with the 
understanding that it applies only to off-campus-sponsored research 
and only to the Boston campus. 

2. Prohibition of ROTC on all campuses of the University 
of Massachusetts. 

Dr. Broderick indicated his support, although there are no immediate 
plans for an ROTC unit at UM/Boston. 

3. Dissociation of UM/Boston from the war by banning all 
on-campus recruitment. This would not affect the 
normal function of the Placement Office and future 
placement of students. 

Noting the obvious differences on this issue between the Amherst and 
Boston campuses, Chancellor Broderick recommended that UM/Boston, 
because of its needs and location, be permitted to implement the 
recommendation of the University Senate as a policy for Boston alone 
for a specified period during which a review of the procedures of 
the Placement Office, a testing of the opinion of a universal ban on 
all (rather than just military) recruiting, and a judgment on 
changes in the situation in Southeast Asia may occur. If a favorably 
legal opinion is not forthcoming on the distinction between placemen 



and recruitment, UM/Boston would then propose a one-year ban on all 
recruitment on campus as a symbol of its dismay regarding the reneweji 
war effort

Representatives from UM/Boston then presented their state- 
nents. Professor Fuad Safwat, a member of the University Senate Ad 
Hoc Committee on Recruitment, submitted a report from that group on 
on-campus recruitment. He stated that this issue is one of great con- 
cern on campuses nationally since any selective ban will produce cer- 
tain difficulties. The Committee has considered legal and financial 
issues as well as the opinion of the students and faculty at UM/Bosto^i 
Results of their study show that very little career recruitment is 
done on the campus through the Counseling Office, which would not be 
adversely affected by a ban. They are aware of the legal implication^ 
of selective banning and also of the possible loss of certain federal 
funds. However, recent polls of both students and faculty resulted 
in a strong majority in favor of removing military recruitment from 
the campus, and this is being recommended by the Committee. 

Mr. John Holiman, Chairman of the Student Activities Commit-- 
tee and a member of the Strike Steering Committee, UM/Boston, referred 
to the schism that has developed between the campus and the Board 
jecause of the April 26 discussion. He conveyed the concern and frus- 
tration of the Boston representatives and urged that the total Univer- 
sity , together with the Trustees, unite in support of a statement in 
apposition to the Vietnam War. 

Professor Igor Webb, a member of the University Senate Ad 
Joe Committee on Recruitment, UM/Boston, objected to the increasing 
control of the government in areas relating to universities and the 
acceptance of these changes as "normal." He strongly urged that ROTC 
recruitment, and research be removed from the campuses immediately. 



Jar. 



Mr. John Clifford, representing Vietnam Veterans Against th£ 
related certain war atrocities and demanded Board action to end 



ill complicity with the war effort. 

Professor Donald Babcock, Faculty Co-chairman of the Univer 
sity Senate, UM/Boston, reiterated the position of the Boston campus 
ind urged the Trustees to support the three recommendations. 

Dean Soutter indicated that he had no comment from the UM/ 
Worcester campus. 

The Trustees then turned to a discussion of the proposed 
Dolicies. Trustee Chandler stated that he would like to see the Board 
oromulgate a statement in support of Senator Brooke's recent sugges- 
:ion that a date certain (August 31) be set for withdrawal of all 
J.S. forces from Indochina. He also stated his belief that the mili- 
tary and academic aspects of ROTC should be separated, and the mili- 
:ary removed from the Amherst campus. 

President Wood, noting that there has been considerable dis-- 
:ussion by all members of the University community for some time, com-- 
nended the statements of concern from both campuses. He added that 
substantial action is possible at both the campus and administrative 
Levels and that the various campuses are separate and distinct organi-- 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

zations which can be dealt with differently. The presen- 
tations at this meeting have been made at his request 
(through the Chancellors) to help the Board in determinin 
a response to each issue. He stressed that statements of 
policy arrived at today will reflect the position not onljy 
of the campuses but also of the Trustees. 

Chairman Healey cited his own abhorrence of the 
war and said that the individual members of the Board 
have a deep and abiding interest in the future of the 
University. Each Trustee is free obviously to use his 
individual judgment in any decision. After brief, furthe 
discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; That because the war in Indochina has 

been an overriding national concern for 
more than ten years and has been a 
deeply divisive and destructive issue 
within the University community, the 
Board of Trustees commends all actions 
by the Congress devoted to ending the 
war and encourages continuing activity 
by members of the University community 
within this legislative process. 

President Wood noted Chancellor Bromery's 
request for confirmation of the Faculty Senate action on 
ROTC credits. On motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To accept the action of the Faculty 

Senate at Amherst terminating academic 
credit for courses taught by the Divi- 
sion of Military and Air Science. 

Dr. Bromery stated that he will inform the AFROTC and the 
ROTC of the change in policy when negotiating current 
renewals of contracts. 

President Wood commented that, although the 
University is a single entity, there can be flexibility 
in policy application appropriate to differing needs and 
campus location. He emphasized that there is a clear 
separation between the question of recruitment , which con 
cerns the career placement service to students, and the 
question of access to campus for the open exchange of 
views. The former can, he suggested, be handled on or of 
campus and in a different manner on each campus as long 
as all parties are treated the same. This is consistent 
with the position of the ACLU.

VOTED : (1) That the suspension of recruitment at the 

Amherst and Worcester campuses of the University 
of Massachusetts be lifted; and (2) that the 
Boston campus be authorized to implement for a 
one-year period a job placement and counseling 
program which provides that all recruitment and 
job placement interviews be conducted off campus , 
section (2) being subject to review by the Board 
of Trustees if its provisions adversely affect 
the interests of the Amherst or Worcester campuses, 
and subject also to full evaluation of off-campus 
recruitment in terms of effectiveness and campus 
acceptance at the end of the one-year period. 

President Wood said the University is involved with a total 
of $4.5 million in government-sponsored research (including $500,000 
for agencies associated with the Department of Defense) and has had 
no secret or classified research since 1965. The University is pre- 
sently ineligible to do classified research and has been so notified 
by the Department of Defense. The Graduate Council, UM/Amherst, 
went on record in 1970 regarding the incompatibility of classified 
research and the educational aims of the University. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : That it is the policy of the University of Massa- 
chusetts to undertake only those research projects 
in which the purpose, scope, methods, and results 
can be fully and freely disclosed. 

Mrs. Rowland reviewed the work of the Joint Ad Hoc Commit- 
tee on Counseling, Advising, and Support Services based on the expres 
sion of concern in June 1971, followed by the appointment of the 
President's Committee on Counseling, Advising, and Support Services 
with Dr. Gage as Chairman. The statement (Doc. T72-126 ) submitted 
for Trustee action at this meeting was the culmination of many hours 
of deliberation and consideration of lengthy reports from the Presi- 
dent's Committee as well as both the Boston and Amherst campuses by 
the Ad Hoc Committee and individually by the Student Activities and 
Faculty and Educational Policy Committees. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To adopt the following resolution (Doc. T72-126 ) 
on counseling, advising, and support services 
and to instruct the Chancellors to develop bud- 
gets to provide personnel for counseling and 
advising at UM/Amherst and UM/Boston: 

Trustee Statement on Counseling, Advising, and Support 

Services 

Among their many responsibilities the Trustees 
have a special concern to ensure access to the 
University for students from widely diverse back- 
grounds, including those whose preparation has 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

been compromised by social, economic, or racial dis- 
crimination. In addition, they have a special inter- 
est in ensuring the success of the living/learning 
experience in which all students throughout the 
entire University have a right to aspire. Since the 
University has an obligation to address itself to 
both the causes and effects of significant social 
problems such as poverty, discrimination, and urban 
decay, it is essential that the University attempt 
to deal with these and similar problems as found 
within the University itself. 

As an integral part of their concern, the Trustees 
recognize the importance and the need for a compre- 
hensive, constructive program of counseling, advising, 
and support services designed to encourage creativity. 
The immediate objective is to provide more adequate 
counseling, advising, and support services to those 
students currently at the University. This requires, 
specifically, greater understanding and sensitivity 
to the needs of students as individuals, a top prior- 
ity in the University's budgetary and planning pro- 
cess, and greater participation of students, faculty, 
and other appropriate personnel in the program design 
and implementation. 

The long-range objectives must be to eliminate as 
much as possible roadblocks to the successful com- 
pletion of a broad educational experience. This means 
that the University must commit itself philosophically 
and financially to the following: 

1. The development of a fully diverse student body, in 
part through ensuring increased recruitment and 
admission of minority and low- income students. 

2. The development of a fully diverse faculty and staff, 
in part through ensuring increased recruitment and 
appointment of minority and women faculty and staff. 

3. The provision of adequate financial aid, especially 

to those students victimized by poverty and discrimina- 
tion. 

4. The provision of the type of tutorial, advising, and 
counseling .services which takes into consideration 
the varying needs of a widely diversified student 
body. 

5. The provision of new methods of teaching, new 
standards of performance, new course content and 
emphases in response to both the student's and 
society's need for the knowledge, and the tools

and the mechanisms to deal effectively with today's 
complex problems of human relationships, human 
arrangements, and human adjustments to techno-

If through the foregoing the University can offer its 
present and future student body the kind of supportive 
services which will assist them in functioning at their 
maximum potential, it will at the same time be estab- 
lishing a more effective process for higher education. 

In response to student demands to reconsider the previous vote on 
recruitment, Chairman Healey stated that the Board had made a deci- 
sion based on President Wood's motion which precluded further action. 
Trustee Ladd offered to meet privately to discuss the action taken. 
However, Trustee Gordon volunteered to present a motion on behalf of 
the students. The motion follows: 

MOVED: That there be a permanent ban on all recruitment on 
all University of Massachusetts campuses. 

The motion was seconded and was defeated.

Mr. Quirk, UM/Amherst ROTC student, pointed out to the 
Irustees that credit is allowed for football and that the military 
officers teaching ROTC subjects have at least a Master's degree. 
Chairman Healey stated that Dr. Bromery had assured him that the actipn 
of the Faculty Senate was based entirely on academic standards. 
Chancellor Bromery added that the Provost's Office had concurred with 
the Faculty Senate in the elimination of credit and that these chan- 
nels are the ones with fundamental responsibility; any appeal should 
go to them. Dr. Wood clarified for Mrs. Rowland that the action does 
not apply to courses taught by academic faculty to ROTC students. 

Reporting for the Faculty and Educational Policy Committee, 
Chairman Troy submitted the following two sets of findings and conclu 
sions regarding the case of Dr. Freda Salzman (Doc. T72-137 ) and 
recommended adoption by the Board: 

I. We conclude that the nonreappointment of Dr. Freda Salzman 
in 1968, effective in 1969, was unfair and discriminatory. 

Former Chancellor Ryan's letter of August 31, 1968, to Dr. 
Salzman informed her that she would not be reappointed 
beyond August 31, 1969, because "University policy quite 
clearly prohibits the contemporaneous appointment, within 
the same department, of close relatives," with "exceptions 
only in rare circumstances when such appointments are in 
the highest interest of the University." 

We concur with the Tenure and Grievance Committee conclusioh 
of December 2, 1970, that this application of the Univer- 
sity's nepotism rule "was in effect his (Chancellor Ryan's) 
own more rigorous interpretation of Trustee policy." We 
concur as well with the Tenure and Grievance Committee con- 
clusion that "because Trustee policy on dual appointments 
had not changed since the initial appointment, this nonre- 
appointment notice constituted an unwarranted abrogation of 
the Trustee action in making the appointment. 

The University's nepotism rule existed in 1965 when Dr. 
Freda Salzman and her husband, Dr. George Salzman, were 
appointed. The rule was not changed until December 28, 197fL 



3 5 87 



I 



'II. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The usual interpretation of the rule was that close rela- 
tives could not both be employed full-time in the same 
department except in rare circumstances. In cases like 
that of the Salzmans, where one relative was full-time and 
the other part-time, the policy was applied in the vast 
majority of cases to permit employment of both relatives to 
continue. The ex post facto , stricter application of the 
rule to Dr. Freda Salzman was, therefore, unfair and dis- 
criminatory. 

We find further that there is nothing else in the record to 
justify Dr. Freda Salzman 's nonreappointment. We find no 
evidence of misconduct, and in particular that material 
alleging practices of nepotism is without substance. We 
direct that Dr. Salzman' s record be cleared of all allega- 
tions and characterizations bearing on alleged nepotism 
practices and other matters unrelated to her employment at 
the University and to that of her husband, so that -these 
items can in no way influence future decisions concerning 
her employment at the University. 

To emphasize our view that the slate should be wiped clean 
and a fresh start made possible, we might well have dir- 
ected that Dr. Freda Salzman 's previous personnel file be 
closed and a new one opened with her return to the Univer- 
sity. But there is also positive material in the file 
regarding her professional qualifications, and she should 
not be denied the benefit of that material. We have, there 
fore, concluded it would be wiser to order that irrelevant 
and/or unsubstantiated negative material be removed from 
the personnel file and disregarded henceforth. 

Since we have found previously that Dr. Freda Salzman 
was erroneously terminated, effective August 31, 1969, 
we believe it follows that she is entitled to back pay. 
We find that she is so entitled for the period from 
September 1, 1969, until April 3, 1972, the date of her 
return to the University, on a three-quarter-time basis, 
including statutory salary adjustments and merit raises 
at 5%. 

The portion of Dr. Salzman' s back pay which is attrib- 
utable to the current fiscal year is within the Univer- 
sity's power to pay, and we direct that this be done 
forthwith. The portion attributable to prior years is 
subject to appropriation by the General Court, and we 
direct the appropriate officials of the University to 
use their best efforts to secure this amount by legis- 
lative actions.

Mr. Coleman, a UM/Amherst student, who had been delayed 
when the subject of the Tuition Increase was presented, spoke earn- 
estly concerning the financial burden on middle-class families and 
urged that no increase be approved. He apologized for the student 
agitation at this meeting and detailed areas of community service in 
which many students participate. 

Trustee Gordon, as the representative to the Board of High- 
er Education, responded that various proposals had involved up to 
$1800 per student a year and that New Hampshire now charges $1000. 
In view of the financial pressures in the Commonwealth, the tuition 
increase voted earlier is the minimum that would be accepted by the 
Legislature. Mr. Gordon assured Mr. Coleman that the President and 
the Board will continue to fight increased tuition and that they 
believe in and are concerned for the best interests of the students. 
On motion made and seconded, it was

for in-state students. 

It was then moved, seconded, and

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

No eulogy can add now to the paeans of praise 
tendered from every corner of this land for the 
human warmth and almost superhuman creativity 
which Frank Boyden brought to the staggering 
array of tasks and accomplishments which formed 
the building blocks of his long and fruitful 
lifetime. 

This Board stands diminished by the absence of 
his wisdom, counsel and humor; but the University 
he served stands richer for the long and inspired 
service he gave to her; all else lies in the 
hearts of each of us, and with our memories of 
the man. 

To Mrs. Helen Boyden and the members of her family, 
this Board of Trustees extends deep and sincere 
condolence. 

Trustee John C. Boyden, who recently succeeded his late 
father as a member of the Board, responded on behalf of the family in 
appreciation, saying that the University and its associations had 
been second only to Deerfield Academy among Dr. Boyden 's interests 
and concerns. He also expressed his pleasure at being appointed to 
complete his father's term as a Trustee* 

Dr. Wood then asked Commissioner Chandler to read the 
following resolution on the death of former Trustee Charles H. 
McNamara: 

RESOLVED: that the following statement be conveyed to Mrs. Mary A. 
McNamara and family of Stoughton, and entered into the 
permanent minutes of this meeting: 

The Board of Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
notes with great sorrow the demise of a former colleague, 
the late Commissioner Charles H. McNamara. A graduate 
of Deerfield Academy and the University of Massachusetts, 
he served his alma mater as Trustee from 1957 to 1969, 
during which time he also filled the office of Commis- 
sioner of Agriculture. 

To his tasks as a Board member, Charles McNamara brought 
the exceptional devotion of an alumnus and the plain- 
spoken wisdom of his background as a successful dairy 
farmer. His years as a Trustee coincided with the most 
dynamic decade of growth and progress which the Univer- 
sity had experienced since its founding. 

To Mrs. Mary A. McNamara and the members of her family, 
this Board of Trustees extends its most sincere regrets 
and sympathy.

President Wood responded to the Acting Chairman's invita- 
tion to present his comments by referring to the lengthy dialogues 
between various groups at recent meetings of the Board. He suggested 
that a change might be welcomed by the Trustees. After first deter- 
mining that the Chancellors and the Dean had no comments, he requested 
immediate consideration of the Committee reports. 

Chairman Troy of the Trustee Committee on Faculty and Edu- 
cational Policy reviewed consideration given the proposed University 
Affirmative Action Program at both Committee and Board level over the 
past several months (Doc. T72-119 ) . The program has now also been 
fully discussed on the campuses and by the Academic Advisory Council. 
At President Wood's request, the Committee now recommends adoption of 
a University-wide policy on Affirmative Action as set forth in Doc. 
T72-155. 



I 



On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the following statement on affirmative 
action as the policy of the University of Massa- 
chusetts : 

Under applicable federal and state laws and regu- 
lations, the Trustees have an obligation to see 
that the University's employment and other person- 
nel policies and practices adhere fully to equal 
opportunity requirements. The Trustees recognize 
that this obligation is one not merely of law, 
but also of principle. 

The obligation extends to all employment with the 
University, from entry-level employment through 
the highest echelons, and includes all faculty and 
staff positions. It requires efforts in good faith 
by the University to comply, and looks toward the 
achievement of results which are the concrete proof 
of those efforts. 

A full plan of affirmative action in hiring will 
include careful identification of areas where 
blacks, other minorities and women are under- 
utilized or underrepresented at the University, 
special activities to recruit qualified personnel 
to remedy such conditions, assurance of equal 
pay for equal work, and promotion and training 
policies which actively encourage upward mobility

for underutilized and underrepresented groups. The 
University also has a related obligation to take 
comparable action that -will ensure full access for 
students to the institution. 

The Trustees intend that this statement be read 
in conjunction with Document T72-126 , their state- 
ment adopted May 10, 1972, regarding counseling, 
advising and support services. That statement 
emphasized that affirmative action in hiring and 
admissions are, along with counseling and advising, 
financial aid, and educational reform, key elements 
in creating a responsive institution. 

. v rhe Trustees further intend that the University be 
fully and promptly in compliance with all applicable 
federal and state laws and regulations relating to 
equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. 
Therefore, the Trustees ask the President to direct 
that the Chancellors and Dean of the Medical School 
submit affirmative action plans to him by June 30, 
1972.

the Committee recommended action based on final certification by the 
respective offices. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve undergraduate degrees, UM/Amhers t (Doc. T72- 
138 ), graduate degrees, UM/ Amherst (Doc. T72-141 ) , 
and degrees awarded by the Division of Continuing 
Education, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-145 ) , to be awarded 
as of May 27, 1972, subject to certification by the 
appropriate office, UM/Amherst. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the awarding of diplomas to those UM/ 

Boston students who will have satisfied by June 8, 
1972, the requirements for the degree and who will 
have been so certified by the Registrar, UM/Boston 
(Doc. T72-163 ). 

Referring to the request for an additional Master's Degree 
in Environmental Engineering, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-156 ) , Mr. Troy 



explained that the present Master's program in Environmental Engineer 
ing will not be granted accreditation because some students are 
accepted who do not have an accredited undergraduate engineering 
degree. In order to maintain the present program and yet make possi 
ble the benefits of accreditation to qualified applicants, the Commit 
tee approved the recommendation that the present single degree be 
replaced by two degrees, both covering the same course content. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the Master of Environmental Engineering 
degree title (nonaccredited) program and the Master 
of Science in Environmental Engineering degree 
title (accredited) program, both requiring the same 
course content, in the Department of Civil Engineer- 
ing, UM/Amherst. 

Before reporting for Chairman Rowland and the Committee on 
Student Activities, Trustee Snowden mentioned the pleasure and satis- 
faction she has felt in working with Mrs. Rowland and commended her 
leadership in the significant progress the Committee has made during 
the past year. 

Turning first to the proposal to establish the Western 
Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group (WMPIRG) at UMAmherst 



(Doc. T72-116 ) , Mrs. Snowden noted that, on advice of legal counsel, 
the Committee is recommending acceptance with a different provision 
for collecting the $2.00 fee.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Western Massachusetts Public 

Interest Research Group (WMPIRG) at UM/Amherst 
and the levying of a WMPIRG student fee of $2.00 
per semester on each student's term bill, pay- 
ment of which may be made on a voluntary but 
nonrefundable basis. 

The Committee also recommended approval of the Student 
Picketing Code passed by the Faculty Senate on February 18, 1971, 



(Doc. T72-109 ), and reaffirmed at its meeting of May 25, 1972, and 
endorsed by the Chancellor, UM/Amherst. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve as the official policy at UM/Amherst 
the Picketing Code outlined in Document T72-109 , 
and including the phrase, "other than classroom 
corridors and faculty office corridors," in 
Section A 1 (a) in conformance with the recom- 
mendation of the Faculty Senate and the Chan- 
cellor, UM/Amherst. 

Reporting for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds, 
Chairman Haigis presented the Traffic Rules and Regulations, UM/ 
Amherst (Doc. T72-153 ) , for Board approval. The document, which is 
the result of careful consideration by a faculty-student- adminis- 
tration committee, is not substantively changed except for the 
addition of an Appeals Board. Dr. Gage has assured the Trustees that 
the rules and regulations will be stringently enforced on the Amherst 
campus . 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That, acting under the powers granted by Section 
32A, Chapter 75, General Laws of the Commonwealth 
and subject to subsequent amendment or revision, 
the rules and regulations as detailed in Document 
T72-153 are hereby adopted for the use and operation 
of vehicles on and about the Amherst campus of the 
University and on other lands of the University 
associated with that campus. 

Except as otherwise provided therein, the General 
Laws of the Commonwealth and the Rules and Regu- 
lations of the Registrar of Motor Vehicles relating 
to the laws of the road and the operation of 
vehicles shall apply to the campus and other lands 
of the University. 

The following vehicles are specifically exempted 
from the provisions of these rules and regulations.

a. Those owned by the Commonwealth or a political 
subdivision of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

b. Those owned by the United States Government. 

c. Those registered to a member of the foreign 
diplomatic corps or by a foreign consular 
officer who is not a citizen of the United 
States - provided the vehicle bears a con- 
spicious registration indicating such status. 

The applicable portion of these regulations shall 
form a part of the contract of employment of every 
employee of the University, and the portions 
thereof applicable to students shall be deemed a 
part of the established regulations of the Univer- 
sity at Amherst which govern every student enrolled 
thereat. 

Mr. Haigis then requested Chancellor Broderick to comment 
on the proposed Conveyance of Land to the Metropolitan District Com- 
mission, UM/Boston , without monetary consideration. The Chancellor 



noted that this will implement the original plan for facilitating the 
movement of persons in the area of the Morrissey Boulevard entrance 
to the Columbia Point campus. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the Interagency Agreement between the 
Trustees of the University and the Metropolitan 
District Commission relating to an interchange 
connecting the Columbia Point campus to William 
T. Morrissey Boulevard, as authorized by Chapter 
898 of the Acts and Resolves of 1969, and as 
detailed in Document T72-154 . 

It was further 

VOTED : That William R. Hamilton, Jr., Vice Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, be, 
and hereby is, authorized to sign, seal with 
the corporate seal, acknowledge and deliver all, 
on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, any deeds, grants of ease- 
ments, or other instruments that may be necessary 
or desirable in connection with the performance 
of the Interagency Agreement entered into between 
the Trustees of the University and the Metro- 
politan District Commission, relating to the 
Interchange connecting the Columbia Point campus 
to William T. Morrissey Boulevard, which was 
authorized by Chapter #898 of the Acts and

Chancellor shall be deemed sufficient compliance 
with the requirements and sufficient evidence of 
his authority hereunder. 

The agreement was circulated for signature by the Trustees present. 

At the invitation of Trustee Haigis, Dean Soutter, UM/ 
Worcester, reported that the act under which he has previously been 
authorized to apply for Federal assistance for the Teaching Hospital 
has expired. However, he has been invited to apply under a new act. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED; To approve the filing of a new application with 
the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and 
Welfare for a grant of funds to the limit permit- 
ted by federal law for construction of the Univer- 
sity hospital at the Medical School, UM/Worcester; 
also, that Dr. Lamar Soutter, Dean of the University 
of Massachusetts Medical School, be, and he hereby 
is, authorized to sign on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees the application to HEW for said funds. 

Dr. Soutter then gave a brief progress report on the Medi- 
cal School, indicating that construction is going very well and is 
ahead of schedule. The footings are in for the Teaching Hospital. 
The Medical Science Building may get partial occupancy in January 
1973 with final transfer in January 1974. 

Completion of the Power Plant by mid-September 1972, to- 
gether with legislative budget cuts and a requirement from the 
Department of Public Safety to have five (rather than three) operators 
on each shift, presents budgetary problems. Dean Soutter mentioned 
two alternative solutions: (1) file a supplementary budget request 
with the Governor to fund the eight additional positions and the 
increased oil requirement or (2) ask the Bureau of Building Construc- 
tion to provide funds to have the contractor seal off the plant unti!. 
next April at a cost of approximately $150,000. At the same time, 
it is recognized that, ideally, several months of training for the 
new staff would be advantageous because of the highly complicated 
operation of the Power Plant. It should be run for a period at 
normal capacity prior to going into regular operation. 

Chairman Haigis, on another item, reported that bids are 
out on the farm buildings (Phase I construction) at South Deerfield, 

UM/Amherst. 

Chairman Pumphret next reported for the Committee 5n 
Finance. He first presented the Rental Changes in Lincoln and 
University Apartments, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-146 ) , to be effected

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

July 1, 1972. The increased rates which are necessary to keep the 
apartments on a self-liquidating basis resulted from negotiations 
carried on by the Housing Administration with the Married Student 
Housing Committee and student tenant groups. Since about 3% of the 
apartments are occupied by faculty and staff at the present time, two 
recommendations were made. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the following be and hereby is established as 
the schedule of charges to be in effect July 1, 
1972, for students who occupy non-Building Authority 
Married Student Apartments at the University of

F 



noted that the changes bring the program up to date; i.e., provide 
for the expenses (rather than only salary) for administration and 
transfer revenues earned on the vending operation. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To amend Trustee vote of 10/16/65 (page 2766 
Trustee Records) on vending machine operation 
on the Amherst campus so that said vote will 
read as follows : 

That all revenue derived from the operation of 
vending machines since July 1, 1965, be trans- 
ferred from the Athletic Trust Fund and Vending 
Machine Income Account (Temporary Trust Fund) to 
the Student Automatic Service (Trust Fund) account; 
and that the Dean of Students be and he hereby 
is authorized to administer said funds; and that 
disbursements from the fund, in the order of 
priority, shall provide for: 

1. Expenses for administration of the program. 

2. Transfer annually to Lincoln, University and 
North Village Apartments (Building Authority 
Project 13) accounts of those revenues earned 
on vending operation in the Lincoln, Univer- 
sity and North Village apartment complexes, 
respectively. 

3. Transfer annually to the Athletic Trust 
Fund of an amount for scholarships to be 
granted to needy and worthy students as 
budgeted. 

4. Transfer of all remaining funds to the Resi- 
dential Halls Cultural Enrichment Program. 

The Finance Committee also recommended that the Stockbridg < i 



Student Fee, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-150 ) be increased $8.00 per year, 
primarily because of the cost of the yearbook. This increase result^ 
from a budget developed by the Stockbridge School of Agriculture

Student Senate in conjunction with the University Undergraduate Stu-

John W. Denison, and Acting Vice Chancellor Gage. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the following schedule of student activities 

taxes be established for students of the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture for 1972-73.

Trustee Pumphret then referred to the Board the proposed 
Undergraduate Student Activities Tax, UM/ Amherst (Doc. T72-151 ) . 
While supporting more than 40 activities with a small overall budget 
increase of 1.2%, it nevertheless reduces the fee by $2.00. Mr. 
Pumphret congratulated the Student Senate for their exemplary work 
on the entire budget.

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the UM/Amherst Student Senate recom- 
mendation that the Student Activities Tax for the 
1972-73 academic year be $33.50, plus a DVP 
(Distinguished Visitors Program) tax of $1.50, 
making a total of $35.00, payable $17.50 per 
semester. 

It was further 

VOTED : To approve the UM/Amherst Student Senate recom- 
mendation that the Senior Tax (Class of 1973) for 
1972-73 be established at $3.00. 

The Board then considered the Finance Committee's recom- 
mendation that the Campus Center Fee, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-152 ) , be 
set at $62.50 for the 1972-73 academic year, that an item of $55,000 
be removed, and that funding structure of the Campus Center be 
studied. Mr. Barry Cohen, Student Union Governing Board Chairman, 
deplored the suspension of the SUG Board's Constitution, necessary to 
set a fee other than the $60.00 requested, even though the budget 
would not be covered or in balance. He urged the Board to repudiate 
the decision of the Finance Committee. Chancellor Bromery recounted 
his efforts and those of Vice Chancellor Campion and Acting Vice 
Chancellor Gage to have the SUG Board reduce their budget or increase 
the fee; however, the SUG Board declined to act and has now disbanded 
for the summer.

Trustee Ladd diagnosed the difficulty as part of the con- 
tinuing student-administration problem evolving around lines of 
authority and responsibility in the Campus Center. He stated that 
le would vote against the motion, adding that the proposed joint 
Trus tee-administration-student subcommittee could be a very important 
vehicle for resolving areas of difference. 

Trustee Croce reasoned that, if the Board of Trustees would 
eventually have to provide funds to cover a deficit, predictable in 
the presentation of an unbalanced budget, then the Board should be 
expected to assume authority when necessary. 

Although the Chancellor could have cut the budget 8% across 
the-board or could have recommended a fee of $65.00 to cover it as 
submitted by the SUG Board, the administration is recommending that 
instead an item of $55,000 for increasing student hourly wages in the 
Campus Center be deleted as discriminatory, pending such time as all 
student salaries on the Amherst campus can be increased. 

The Trustees felt that their budget action together with 
the appointment of the above-described joint committee to review the 
Campus Center financial operation would lead finally to cooperative 
effort between the Amherst administration and the SUG Board in all 
areas regarding administration of the Campus Center. 

After brief further discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To approve a student fee of $62.50 for the Campus 
Center-Student Union Complex for FY 1973, thus 
making possible a balanced Student Union Governing 
Board budget, with the removal of an item of 
$55,000 for increasing student hourly wages; also, 
that the Finance Committee be authorized to proceed 
with the appointment of a special, joint Trustee- 
administration-student subcommittee to study the 
funding structure of the Campus Center, UM/Amherst. 

Trustee Ladd is recorded as voting in opposition. 

Turning to the Proposed Loan to the Boarding Hall Trust- 
Fund, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-148) , Chairman Pumphret proposed that, 



since the income and expenditure figures for the year indicated a 
38% reduction in the deficit as of June 30, 1972, the Board approve 
the transfer of such funds as may be needed, pending receipt of 
student fees for the academic year 1972-73. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the loan of sufficient funds to the 
Boarding Hall Trust Fund from the Student Housing 
Deposit Account (#06-038630) at 4.5% interest, 
compounded monthly, to liquidate accounts payable 
as of June 30, 1972, subject to repayment on or 
before October 1, 1972.

The Finance Committee is also recommending approval of a 
Request for a Loan for the Campus Center Garage, UM/Amherst (Doc. 
T72-149) on a temporary basis, as necessary, subject to consideration 



and approval by the President and the administration, UM/Amherst. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To take note of the fact that there is a possibility 
of a temporary deficit for the current year's 
operation of the parking garage /Amherst and to 
authorize the President with the UM/Amherst Admin- 
istration to utilize available funds or make other 
arrangements to cover temporarily any deficits 
during the period of temporary financing. 

Trustee Pumphret then asked the approval of the 4.3% cost- 
of-living wage increase for professional employees of the University. 

It was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; That, in accordance with the provisions of Section 
14 of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended, 
and the provisions of Chapter 300 of the Acts of 
1972 and the authority contained therein and all 
other acts applicable thereto, each officer and 
member of the professional staff of the University 
of Massachusetts employed in a position paid in 
whole or in part from state funds under subsidiary 
accounts designated 01 and 02 shall for the period 
beginning December 26, 1971, have the rate of his 
regular compensation otherwise paid or payable on 
December 25, 1971, increased by an amount of four 
and three-tenths percent but such increase shall 
not be applied to any salary rate previously fixed 
by vote of the Trustees or to any salary rate 
previously fixed under authority delegated by the 
Trustees for any such new professional employee 
entering the service of the University of Massachusetts 
on or after December 26, 1971, and that the Presi- 
dent of the University is hereby authorized to take 
all actions necessary or desirable to implement this 
Act and to also apply an increase not to exceed four 
and three-tenths percent to the regular compensation 
in the same manner to all members of the professional 
staff and classified employees normally paid from 
other than state funds who in his judgment are in 
categories of employment equivalent to the intent 
and scope of said Chapter 300, provided, however, 
that in the case of those paid from institute, grant 
or contract funds the recommendations and certifi- 
cation of the availability of funds by the cognizant 
principal investigator or director shall be a pre- 
requisite to the payment of any such increase.

The final recommendation from the Finance Committee was its 
support of the $2.00 WMPIRG fee, as recommended earlier by the Stu- 
dent Activities Committee. 

VOTED : To recognize the concurrent action of the Finance 

Committee and the Student Activities Committee with 
respect to the $2.00 WMPIRG fee, voted earlier at 
this meeting. 

President Wood presented two Personnel Actions for Board 
approval, one being Dr. Adam Yarmolinsky 's appointment as the first 
Ralph Waldo Emerson Professor of the University of Massachusetts. 



On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions 

involving tenure as detailed in Document T72-143 , 
which is herewith attached to and made a part 
of these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to 

the policies and procedures now in effect as sub- 
sequently amended, revised, added to, or repealed 
by the Board of Trustees with respect to profes- 
sional personnel under provisions of Chapter 75 
of the General Laws as amended by Chapter 648, 
1962. The classification, salary range, and des- 
criptive job specification for each position to 
which a member of the professional staff is here- 
by appointed, promoted, transferred, or determined 
shall be as hereafter determined by the Board of 
Trustees or under their authority. 



Acting Chairman Crowley then announced that Professor 
Terence Burke will succeed Professor Joseph Burroughs as the repre- 
sentative of the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst, to the Board of Trustees 
The following resolution, as proposed by Trustee Shaler, was seconded 
and 

VOTED : THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION: 

RESOLVED, that the Board express its thanks, admiration, 
and appreciation to Professor Joseph Burroughs who has 
served with distinction, understanding, and humor in 
representing the Amherst faculty before the Board, in 
articulating faculty opinion to the Board, and in 
attempting to convey to the Faculty Senate the supposed 
rationale behind the actions and position of the 
Trustees.

Chancellor Bromery expressed the appreciation of the Amhers 
administration for Professor Burroughs' service. He added that Pro- 
fessor Burke "brings the same ability with a British accent." Presi- 
Wood echoed the expressions already on record, adding that this year 
he himself is a voting member of the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst. 

Professor Burroughs voiced his gratitude to the Board, 
President Wood, and Secretary McCartney for the courtesies extended 
to him during the past, rather difficult year for all. He is 
encouraged, he said, by "recent actions by the Board and recent 
vigorous leadership by the President in the direction of better com- 
munication and more consultation with the faculty." 

Trustee Crowley also expressed the appreciation of the 
Board to Kevin Carman, student Trustee, UM/Boston, for his service 
and contribution to the Board during the past year. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

sent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was con- 
vened by Chairman Healey at 2:45 p.m. 

Mr. Healey expressed the Board's appreciation to Mr. John 
k. Naegele, Head of the Waltham Suburban Experiment Station, and his 
faculty and staff for their hospitality. Mr. Naegele welcomed the 
Trustees for this meeting and invited future visits to the Station. 

The Chairman then formally greeted and introduced Dr. 
Joseph M. Cronin, Secretary of Educational Affairs of the Commonwealth, 
ffho will be attending Board meetings as a representative of Governor 
Sargent. He also introduced Miss Ellen Kelly and welcomed her to the 
Board as the newly elected student Trustee from UM/Boston. 

The minutes of the meeting of May 26, 1972, were presented 
for approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees held on May 26, 1972. 

President Wood referred briefly to the budget and the 1.6 
nillion dollars restored by the General Court. He thanked Secretary 
Zronin for his assistance to the University in this area and welcomed 
aim to the meeting. 

At. Dr. Wood's request, Chairman Healey then turned to 
hancellor Broderick, UM/Boston, who made the following statement: 

"Mr. Chairman, President Wood's conduct toward the Boston 
campus, toward the Office of the Chancellor, and toward me 
since September of last year has convinced me that the 
development of UM/Boston will be better served by having 
someone other than me as Chancellor. Monday morning Mr. Wood 
requested my resignation and I am indeed resigning at the 
close of business today. Mr. Wood has made my position 
easier by offering to propose to the Board of Trustees as 
part of the terms surrounding my resignation a generous 
arrangement for my future as a Professor at UM/Boston. At 
no time prior to today has Mr. Wood discussed my stewardship 
at a meeting of the Board of Trustees or of a Committee of 
the Board at which I was given an opportunity to be heard. 
Today I made some observations privately at the executive 
session of the Board. I shall make no further public comment 
on the entire situation." 

^rofessor James Broderick, as the acting University Senate repre- 
sentative of UM/Boston, reported that, at a recent meeting of the 
Executive Committees of the Senate and Colleges I and II, Chancellor 
Jroderick had been unanimously requested to reconsider his intention 
:o resign. He continued that the Chancellor had come to UM/Boston 
four years ago at a difficult time and, since then, had succeeded in 
building an excellent administrative staff and faculty and had helped 
o organize Colleges I and II. Because reports have already appeared 
.n the press, Professor Broderick requested the Board to reaffirm two 
principles it has already adopted: (1) as enunciated in the Senate 
Constitution, a guarantee that the faculty and students will have a 
voice in governance at UM/Boston and especially in the selection of 
uajor administrative appointments; and (2) as enunciated in the Marcus 
report setting up the System Office, a guarantee of "as much autonomy 
is possible." 

President Wood endorsed Professor Broderick' s statement, 
;ioting the inaccuracy of some of the newspaper accounts, and added 

:hat the Chancellor's resignation was brought about solely by a 
natter related to the President and the Board of Trustees. It was 
iiot in any way related to the UM/Boston campus as an issue of "per- 
nissiveness" or autonomy. As further reassurance, he noted that the 

5oard would, at this meeting, be considering the establishment of a 
i'an-University Summer Study Group on governance at the request of the 

JM/ Amherst and UM/Boston faculties.

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To reaffirm the basic principles with respect to 
the relationship of the campuses to the central 
system and the role of the campus constituencies 
in governance and in the selection of a Chancellor 
at UM/Boston. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To accept with regret the resignation of the 
Chancellor, UM/Boston, and to acknowledge his 
contributions to the Boston campus throughout 
four critical years in its development and 
expansion. 

Trustee Kelly expressed the support of the UM/Boston studen : 
body for Chancellor Broderick. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To appoint Francis L. Broderick as Commonwealth 
Professor of the University in History effective 
June 28, 1972. 

Professor James Broderick requested, on behalf of the 
Executive Committees of the University Senate and of Colleges I and 
II, UM/Boston, that the Board delay the appointment of an Acting 
Chancellor to allow time for consultation with the Executive Committe 
of the Senate. Chairman Healey stated that the Board had agreed in 
executive session prior to this meeting to receive nominations for 
the position of Chancellor up to the close of business on July 7 and 
to give the University Senate, UM/Boston, Executive Committee and 
other groups interested an opportunity to review the names submitted 
He also announced that the Board will hold a special meeting shortly 
after July 7 at which it will also determine the structure of and 
procedure for the Search Committee for a Chancellor, UM/Boston. Dr. 
Wood noted that certain administrative arrangements will also need to 
be made. 



Chancellor Bromery, UM/ Amherst, 
in deference to the long agenda. 



chose to reserve his comments 



For UM/Worcester, Dean Soutter reported that the building 
program is progressing very well. Among the new programs of service 
is one with the Department of Public Health in Worcester on a survey 
related to hepititis in central Massachusetts and another with the 
state Department of Mental Health to improve hospital care in 
Western Massachusetts. An Assistant Professor of Neurology will soon 
be added to the faculty and will be available as a consultant to 
hospitals in Western Massachusetts, along with other doctors at the 
Medical School.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reported that Committee's recommendations to the 
Board. 

A Three-year Mandate of Operation for the University With- 
out Walls, UM/ Amherst (Doc. T72-165) , has been requested. This is an 



alternative program of learning, particularly for older students, 
which leads to the Bachelor's degree and permits independent study 
and career work under a wide variety of options with credit for both 
experience and formal course work. It is expected that the present 
enrollment of 50 students will increase to a maximum of 200 over the 
next three years, at which time it will again be reviewed. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve a three-year mandate of operation for 

the University Without Walls, UM/Amherst, according 
to the guidelines set forth in Part II of Document 
T72-165 . 

Regarding the Name Change: Department of Electrical Engi- 
neering to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering , 



UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-166) , on recommendation of the Committee it was 



moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the name change for the Department 
of Electrical Engineering to the Department of 
Electrical and Computer Engineering, UM/Amherst. 

It was noted that this department will cooperate with the 
Department of Computer Science in the use of equipment but that there 
is no duplication of courses. 

Another Name Change: College of Agriculture to College of 
Food and Natural Resources, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-168) was also recom- 



mended by the Committee since the original name no longer accurately 
describes the curriculum and function of the College. Commissioner 
of Agriculture Chandler expressed doubt that the agricultural com- 
munity would favor the change and proposed College of Environmental 
Sciences as an alternative. Chancellor Bromery noted that many sug- 
getions have been considered during the past year, finally resulting 
in the change as requested. Extreme care has been necessary to avoid 
encroaching on areas of other Departments. Trustee Knowles commented 
that the word "Agriculture" might be retained in the name: i.e., 
College of Agriculture and Food and Natural Resources. Dr. Ernest 
Buck, Associate Dean of Agriculture, UM/Amherst, stressed that this 
was the only name accepted by the majority of the College after ten 
years of various attempts. A motion to remand the proposal to the 
Committee was defeated. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the name change for the College of Agri- 
culture to the College of Food and Natural Resources, 
UM/Amherst.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Board then considered two Faculty Senate Constitutional 
Amendments: (1) Membership (Doc. T72-170) and (2) Athletic Council 



(Doc. T72-171 ) , UM/ Amherst, for ratification. The first amendment 
reinstates the President as a voting ex officio member of the Faculty 
Senate. The second amendment restructures the membership of the 
Athletic Council. This has been the subject of considerable debate 
by both Student and Faculty Senates. Trustee Ladd remarked on the 
year-long effort to achieve a Council more nearly representative of 
the various constituencies on the Amherst campus. He gave much credit 
to former student Trustee Sandwen and to Chancellor Bromery for making 
it an actuality. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the amendment of the Faculty Senate 

Constitution, UM/Amherst, Article 4, Section (a) 
as follows : 

4. (a) The following officials of the University 
shall be ex officio members of the Senate with power 
to vote: President, Chancellor, etc 

It was then 

VOTED : To approve the amendment of the Faculty Senate 
Constitution, UM/Amherst, as follows: 

There shall be an Athletic Council charged with 
implementing the "Statement on Athletic Policy of 
the University of Massachusetts" adopted by the 
Board of Trustees on February 14, 1957, and any 
such resolution of the Boards of Trustees which 
may be adopted hereafter. All athletic accounts 
shall be open to review by the President of the 
Undergraduate Senate or his authorized delegate. 
Meetings of the Council shall be open to the 
campus community, except in extraordinary circum- 
stances. The Council shall submit an annual 
report to the Faculty Senate and the Undergraduate 
Student Senate. The report shall include a detailed 
breakdown of all athletic program budgets. Its 
members shall be: 



1. Eight members of the professional staff, at 
least three of whom shall be alumni. Of the 
above, three alumni shall be selected by the 
Associate Alumni for three-year terms. Five 
other professional staff shall be appointed 
in the manner specified in paragraph (h) above, 
one each year for a five-year term; at least 
four shall be from the faculty and one from the 
administration.

3. Six undergraduate students to be chosen 
for two-year terms in a manner determined 
by the Undergraduate Student Senate. 

4. The Director of Athletics, without vote. 

5. The outgoing chairman, if his chairmanship 
and term of Council membership expire 
simultaneously, shall serve ex officio on 
the Council and its Executive Committee 
for the year following such expiration. 

There shall be an Alumni Committee to recommend and 
promote ways of obtaining greater alumni support 
for the University's athletic interests. It shall 
be composed of five members of the Alumni Association 
chosen by the Association in accordance with its 
usual procedures. 

The Committee next recommended Sponsorship of the Publi- 
cation of the Works of Miguel Angel Asturias (Docs. T72-172A and 



T72-172B ) being carried out by UNESCO and the University of Paris. 
Mr. Asturias, a native of Guatemala, is one of the most distinguished 
Latin-American writers in the world and has been honored many times 
both for his literary distinctions and his political concerns. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve sponsorship by the University of Massa- 
chusetts of the publication of the works of 
Miguel Angel Asturias. 

Finally, Chairman Troy presented for tenure approval the 
names of Professors Warren J. Cherniak, English, and Daniel Laufer, 
Chemistry, UM/Boston, and Dr. Donald R. Tipper, Professor and Chair- 
man, Microbiology, UM/Worcester. 

On motion made and seconded, it was

Doc. T72-175 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Turning to items originally intended for consideration by 
the Executive Committee prior to this meeting, President Wood stated 
that the Trustees have had an opportunity to review the Operating 
Budget for Fiscal Year 1973 (Doc. T72-176 ) , which will go into effect 
on July 1, 1972. The budget as submitted presents a more detailed 
and integrated picture of the total appropriated and, nonstate fund 
projections than has been available previously. Vice President 
Phillips and other members of the various staffs involved are avail- 
able for providing background information to the press or the Trustees 
Dr. Wood also commended the Budget Offices of the three campuses for 
their hard work over the past few weeks in preparing the material. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1973 
as detailed in Document T72-176 , subject to an 
evaluation of the impact on the University's program 
of the statewide amendments (Sections 2B and 2C 
of the General Appropriation Act for the 1973 fiscal 
year) . 

President Wood then turned to the Establishment of a Pan- 
University Summer Study Group for Review of University Governance 
Procedures, originally proposed by the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst. 



The central purpose of this group is to review the various 
principles relating to faculty and student participation in universitjy 
governance taking into account a multi-campus situation, and in 
particular to explore ways of strengthening the concept of joint 
participation in university governance between governing board, 
administration, and the various campus governing bodies. The group 
will take into account the various reports of the American Associ- 
ation of University Professors and other documents pertaining to 
university governance. After seeking the advice and recommendations 
of the campus governing units, the group will report to the President 
and the Board in the fall semester of the academic year, 1972-73. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the establishment of a pan- 
university summer study group for review of 
the University governance procedures with 
such reference groups on the respective 
campuses as the campuses deem appropriate. 

Regarding the Proposal for Tuition Waiver for Residence ' 
Hall Counselors, UM/Amherst (Doc. T72-175), the President noted that 



this was a first step in the area of the continuing concerns of the 
Joint Ad Hoc Committee on Counseling, Advising, and Support Service's 
resolution adopted by the Trustees on May 10, 1972 (Doc. T72-126 ) . 
At that time he had stated that the administrative and financial 
adjustments necessary to make objectives effective would be forth- 
coming. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, noted that the waivers will 
provide only a temporary solution by supplementing the low pay schedul 

or counselors who are required to participate in a training program 
^nd provide superior service in the residence hall program. He 

ndicated that a study of undergraduate tuition waivers will continue 
And that this proposal is merely an interim measure until some other 
method of compensation becomes possible. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To grant to the Chancellor, for a trial period of 
two years, authority to offer a waiver of tuition 
at the undergraduate in-state rate to a maximum 
of 400 undergraduate residence hall counselors, or 
their equivalent, in accordance with criteria 
adopted by the administration. 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Committee on Buildings and 
grounds, then presented the recommendations of that Committee. 

As required by the Department of Public Utilities, the 
■trustees have been requested to grant an Easement to the Nantucket 
( las and Electric Company (Doc. T72-174 ) for the purpose of installing 



3613 



and maintaining a transformer to provide new underground electric 
ervice to the Nantucket buildings owned by the University. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Treasurer Kenneth W. Johnson to execute 
as easement, in a form presented to the meeting, 
from the Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
to the Nantucket Gas and Electric Company to install 
and maintain an electric power transformer on Univer- 
sity property with right of access thereto including 
access to a utility pole serving said transformer. 

Continuing his report, Chairman Haigis turned to the Review 
f Schematic Drawings — Phase Ila at Columbia Point (Doc. T72-180 ) , 



and noted that Trustee action on Building 030 (College of Public and 
Community Service) will take place in August or September so that 
Dean Strange can make his recommendations on the building program. 
Trustee consideration of the plans for Building 080/2 will likely 
take place later in the calendar year with assurance given to all 
elements of the campus that their participation in this review would 
be encouraged. A continuing reevaluation of the design and construc- 
tion plans for the campus at Columbia Point is underway with Harold 
Roth of Roth, Saad and Moore of New Haven serving as an architectural 
consultant. 

The Committee is recommending action on Building 120, the 
Physical Education Building. While the building ispprimarily 
designed for student, faculty and staff use, provisions are also 
being made for organized community use. Such use would be intended 
not only for residents of the Columbia Point housing project near the 
campus also for residents of the Savin Hill, Dorchester and South

Boston areas. The Committee had been given a long presentation of 
the building by George Notter of the architectural firm, Anderson & 
Notter. The building includes a large swimming pool, a skating rink, 
a large gymnasium room convertible to assembly space, and a variety 
of smaller athletic and locker facilities. 

In recommending approval, Trustee Haigis stressed that a 
continuing study of the nature of the community participation in the 
gymnasium facility would be important. He also urged that the locker 
facilities be structured to be able to accommodate an equal number oi 
men and women users. Trustee Pumphret raised several questions re- 
garding the nature of the student and community use of the building, 
the nature of the entrances and circulation within the building, and 
the need for extensive spectator space in the building. Because of 
several Trustee questions and in light of the fact that a special 
meeting of the Trustees was already scheduled for early July, Chair- 
man Healey suggested that the schematic drawings for Building 120 be 
presented to the full Board. Chairman Haigis concurred. 

Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the Committee on Finance, 
then presented items originally listed for consideration by that 
Committee immediately previous to this meeting. 

An attractive offer has been made for an essentially land- 
locked parcel of Land in Franklin County, Ohio, Received by Gift 
from the Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln Trust . 



On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the gift of 9.192 acres of land in 
Franklin County, Ohio from the Murray D. and 
Anne H. Lincoln Trust and to add the proceeds 
from the sale thereof (less expenses connected 
with the sale) to the principal of the Murray 
D. and Anne H. Lincoln Endowment Fund. 

It was further 

VOTED : To authorize Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer of 
the University, to sign and seal and deliver 
in the name of and on behalf of the Board of 
Trustees, a Warranty Deed in a form presented 
to this meeting granting to American Urban 
Corporation, 1681 Moler Road, Columbus, Ohio, 
two parcels of real estate situated in the 
County of Franklin, in the State of Ohio, in the

parcel No. 2 land received by gift from Murray 
D. and Anne H. Lincoln for the purpose of estab- 
lishing an endowment in their names and that the 
sales price is fifty-nine thousand five hundred 
sixty-two dollars ($59,562.00). 

The Board then considered the Proposed Health Services Fee 
Increase, UM/Boston , to cover health services during late afternoon 
and evening hours to coincide with the extended teaching day. This 
increase was endorsed by both the University Senate and the Adminis- 
tration, UM/Boston. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve an increase in the Health Services Fee, 
UM/Boston, of $1.00 per semester, from $13 to $14, 
effective with the 1972-73 academic year. 

Trustee Pumphret also mentioned that a study is being made 
of the Campus Center Hotel Rates, UM/Amherst , designed to give the 
Administration more flexibility. The Committee, though agreeable, is 
waiting for a report from Counsel before asking for Board action. 

Turning to Personnel Actions, UM/Amherst, it was moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions 
involving tenure as detailed in Document 
T72-164 , which is herewith attached to and 
made a part of these minutes. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject 
to the policies and procedures now in effect 
as subsequently amended, revised, added to, or 
repealed by the Board of Trustees with respect 
to professional personnel under provisions of 
Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended by 
Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specification for 
each position to which a member of the pro- 
fessional staff is hereby appointed, promoted, 
transferred, or determined shall be as hereafter 
determined by the Board of Trustees or under 
their authority. 

Trustee Ab rams, referring to discussion at the May 26, 1972 
meeting of the Committee on Student Activities, requested that the 
Medical School, through Dean Soutter, and in cooperation with the 
CCEBS staff, provide information to the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy for developing a recruitment plan to increase 
minority-group admissions.

Trustee Knowles requested the President's Office to alert 
Trustees promptly when serious problems occur so they have time to 
evaluate the situations and are prepared to respond to public 
inquiries as well as to act at subsequent Board meetings . 

Trustee Troy objected to a recent newspaper report implying 
that the Trustees felt that the UM/Boston'^ faculty's policy of per- 
missiveness was indirectly responsible for the turbulent meeting of 
April 26, 1972. He declared that the Board has built an excellent 
staff at UM/Boston and does not regard the actions of a small group 
of students as representative of the entire student body of the 
University. 

The meeting was adjourned at 3:50 p.m.

lished to identify and evaluate potential candidates; and in regular 
consultation with the President, to recommend to the Trustees at 
least three individuals whom they believe suitable, describing such 
in terms of their special qualifications. 

The Committee shall determine specific procedures subject 
to the approval of the Board of Trustees. These should include 
arrangements that provide for active solicitation of names of 
potential candidates to ensure the best possible choice, appropriate 
methods of screening, and methods of consultation with alumni and 
other University constituencies that appear appropriate. 

The Committee should aim to complete its work by the end 
of the calendar year, 1972, providing the President with its report 
for transmission to the Board together with his comments and recom- 
mendations. The Board would look forward to making its decision as 
early as possible in the second semester of the academic year 1972-72 

In the context of this statement and on motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : That a Search Committee be established to consider 
and make recommendations to the President and the 
Board of Trustees for the appointment of a Chancellor 
for the University of Massachusetts at Boston; that 
this committee be composed of four members of the 
faculty, three students, and a member of the campus 
administration to be appointed by the Executive 
Committee of the University Senate, with a view 
toward achieving a balanced and comprehensive repre- 
sentative committee, and two Trustees to be 
appointed by the Chairman. The procedure to be 
followed by the Committee shall be determined by 
the Committee, subject to the approval of the 
Board of Trustees. 

The executive session was then recessed for lunch, and the 
provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having been complied 
with, the formal session of the Board was convened by Chairman Healey 
at 2:35 p.m.

President Wood requested confirmation of action taken by 
the Board on June 28, 1972, regarding Personnel Actions for Francis 
L. Broderick and as outlined at the executive session immediately 
preceding this meeting (Doc. T72-181 ) . 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve Personnel Actions for 
Francis L. Broderick as outlined in Document 
T72-181 . 

Chairman Healey invited President Wood to present the moticft 
of the Board regarding the appointment of an Acting Chancellor for 
UM/Boston. This motion had been approved at the executive session 
of the Board of Trustees earlier in the day and is set forth above in 
these minutes. On motion moved and seconded, such motion was 
approved in the formal session. 

Dr. Hamilton, as the newly appointed Acting Chancellor, 
UM/Boston, read a statement (Doc. T73-001 ) pledging continuation of 
the high level already established for curriculum, faculty, and 
staff. He stressed the necessity to continue to strengthen the 
University's ties with the City of Boston, especially those neighbor 
hoods surrounding the Columbia Point campus. In closing, Dr. Hamiltcjn 
expressed gratitude to Governor Sargent and the General Court for 
their investment in the new campus now under construction and in the 
education to be provided there. 

The Board then considered the formation of a Search Commit- 
tee for a Chancellor, UM/Boston. President Wood presented the 
statement of composition and procedures as set forth above in the 
minutes from the executive session and then presented the formal 
motion which had been approved in the executive session and is set 
forth above in the minutes from that session. On motion made and 
seconded, such motion was approved in the formal session. 



Acting Chancellor Hamilton then requested approval of the 
schematic drawings for the physical education building (Building 120) 
at the Columbia Point campus, so that the architects could proceed ti 
the preliminary drawing stage. He stated that the building has been 
designed as compactly as possible within the campus Master Plan and 
in line with the academic program being developed. 

Planning Officer O'Brien reviewed the budget (just under 
$15 million, including a substantial amount of site work) and noted 
that occupancy in 1974 is planned. He introduced Mr. George Notter 
of Anderson-Notter Associates, architects of the building, who pre- 
sented the schematic drawings. 

The plan includes two levels for parking and two levels of 
physical education facilities which include a swimming pool, a skat- 
ing (hockey) rink, a gymnasium which is convertible to assembly use, 
and a variety of other smaller athletic rooms and locker facilities.

Spectator seating is provided primarily by folding bleachers which 
would be locked when not in use. Access to the building would be by 
various entrances with the building primarily designed for student 
use with community use envisioned where possible. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the schematic drawings for Building 

120 with the understanding that the usual flexi- 
bility of design that pertains prior to the 
development of working drawings will permit the 
consideration of the question of spectator seat- 
ing and access and with the further understanding 
that the President and Acting Chancellor are 
directed to develop a parallel program related to 
community participation that provides orderly 
access for major community constituents and 
insures that the essential educational program 
of the building is maintained. 

It was noted that the Personnel Actions had been voted 
upon in the morning's executive session at which sixteen Trustees 
were present.

and new trends in higher education over the 
past five years. The gymnasium (Building 120), 
College 030, and the second half of the 
Science Building are all in process. The 
President assured the Trustees that there is 
no major change, but merely a reassurance 
that the campus will be developed on as 
efficient a basis as possible. Dr. Wood 
expressed appreciation to Acting Chancellor 
Hamilton, Acting Vice Chancellor Marshall, 
and their faculty and students for their 
efforts. Another report will be made at the 
next meeting of the Board. 

2. Report from four faculty members (two, UM/ 
Amherst; two, UM/Boston) on the Governance 
Study Group. This will be reviewed by Chair- 
man Healey and President Wood prior to a 
meeting of the full Study Group. This effort 
to coordinate on a University-wide basis the 
decision-making powers and responsibilities 
emphasizes the interdependence of the various 
components and the need for consultation and 
specialization. The full Board will ultimately 
consider some of the specific recommendations. 

3. Revision of Board of Trustees Bylaws and 
formal meeting procedures by Secretary 
McCartney. This material will be referred to 
the Executive Committee in the near future, 
and finally to the Board for approval. 

4. A Search Committee for a Chancellor, UM/Boston, 
has been constituted and will procedd,iatconee 
with its duties. Dr. Wood expressed appreciation 
to Acting Vice Chancellor Marshall and the 
University Senate Executive Committee for 
assistance. 

5. An agreement of collaboration on radio facili- 
ties has been signed between the University of 
Massachusetts and Boston University. Dr. Wood 
stressed the importance of sharing resources 

at this critical time; he hopes to make further 
use of this type of arrangement. 

6. Presidents of the six New England Land-Grant 
Colleges met twice during the summer and have 

c .established a liaison officer at the Education 
Center in Durham, New Hampshire. Mutual col- 
laboration on enterprises and shared use of 
resources are among the anticipated goals.

President Wood then turned to Vice President Phillips to 
review the FY 1974 Maintenance Budget Request, noting that it has 
been studied thoroughly by the Executive Committee and distributed 
to the full Board several days ago (Doc. T73-012 ) . Mr. Phillips 
reviewed five projected slides highlighting major developments on all 
campuses anticipated during the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1973, 
along with enrollment, personnel, and fund summaries, and a com- 
parison of nonresidential space (Doc. T73-020 ) . The present 15:1 
student-faculty ratio is being maintained at both Amherst and Boston 
by projected increases in these areas. 

At UM/ Amherst, provision is made for closed-circuit televi- 
sion capability, the initial year of funding for a Law Center, imple- 
mentation of graduate programs , and occupation of the Fine Arts 
buildings. Many increases in the UM/Boston budget are related to 
occupation of and provision for facilities at the Columbia Point 
campus in that fiscal year. In addition, provision is made for the 
development of expanded student services, following the recommenda- 
tions of the Gage Committee. 

The Medical School, UM/Worcester , will attain provision of 
a full four years of medical training in FY 1974 which, together 
with the occupation and staffing of new facilities, requires budgetary 
increases. 

Projected enrollments for FY 1974 reach 22,055 for UM/ 
Amherst, 6,360 for UM/Boston, and 104 for the Medical School. 
Increased responsibility for management and operation was emphasized 
by figures showing an increase of 10% in nonresidential space at 
UM/ Amherst, 200% at UM/Boston, and 400% at UM/Worcester. Full-time 
personnel being recommended maintain the 15:1 ratio at Amherst and 
Boston with increases in administrative, staff, and classified posi- 
tions. The budget being recommended totals $98,006,811. This repre- 
sents a reduction of 6.6 million dollars or 6.4% after lengthy 
review by the President and his staff in consultation with the 
campuses . 

President Wood expressed concern that implementation of 
programs, especially at Columbia Point and the Medical School, coin- 
cides with a serious financial situation in the Commonwealth as a 
whole. Governor Sargent, speaking to the Board at lunch today, had 
urged economy measures, at the same time supporting the leadership 
of the University in the area of public higher education in the 
state. 



and 



There being no further discussion, it was moved, seconded, 



VOTED : To accept the recommendations of President Wood on 

the University's Fiscal Year 1974 Maintenance Budget 
Request and to approve as a ceiling figure the amount 
of $98,006,811 which will continue to be subject to 
refinement and reduction by the President in consulta- 
tion with the Chancellor, UM/Amherst, the Acting Chan- 
cellor, UM/Boston, and the Dean of the Medical School.

Report of 
Executive 
Committee 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton said that he expects to request 
the Board for approval of the new University Assembly constitution at 
its next meeting and hopes to have constitutions for the Colleges 
ready soon. He reported a freshman class of 850 this fall as well as 
900 transfer students. He invited the Trustees to visit the Columbia 
Point campus. Dr. Hamilton mentioned the use of late afternoon and 
evening classes as presenting difficulties in scheduling with 96% of 
the 5,300 students located within the Route 495 area and 65-70% still 
working during the academic year. UM/Boston has applied for and 
expects to receive special grants for veterans. 

President Wood then referred to aerial photographs of the 
Columbia Point campus on display in the meeting room taken by Jerry 
Buckley; also of UM/Worcester, taken by John McCarthy. 

For the Medical School, Dean Soutter reported that the 
second-year class has taken Part I of the National Board Examinations 
These examinations for National Medical Licensure in three parts are 
given after the second year, the fourth year, and finally after a 
period of hospital training. Part I has examinations in six subjects 
and was taken by over 8,000 students. At good schools, about 6 per- 
cent of the students fail them. However, Dr. Soutter reported, all 
Medical School students had passing averages, although one failed 
one subject. Many of the scores were very good, the best record 
being in the top 2 percent in the nation. These results were very 
reassuring to the faculty. 

Chancellor Bromery introduced Dr. Warren Gulko, the recentljy 
appointed Budget Director at UM/ Amherst. He then reported the 
receipt of a $590,000 grant from W. K. Kellogg to be used over the 
next three years for developing a plan to improve university teaching 
Dr. Bromery, recently returned from consultation in Malawi, conveyed 
to the Board greetings from President Banda, an honorary degree 
recipient in 1967. Dr. Bromery is reviewing the report of the campus 
Committee for the Implementation of a Law Center at UM/ Amherst. He 
expects to have information for the Board soon. 

The Trustees then gave attention to Vice President Phillips 
who presented the recommendations of the Executive Committee. 

Mr. Phillips reviewed the action of the Legislature, under 
the Shepard Amendments, which set aside a reserve to be retained in 
the state treasury, 15% of which is available for essential uses 
within the Commonwealth during FY 1973. The Committee is proposing 
that the Trustees request a portion of this reserve (Doc. T73-014 ) . 
On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize submission of a request f o; the 

Secretary for Educational Affairs for $698,077 
from the reserve fund established under sections 
2B and 2C of the FY 1973 Appropriation Act. 
These funds are required for the operation of the 
University of Massachusetts for FY 1973 and are to 
be incorporated into the University's Operating 
Budget.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Continuing for the Executive Committee, Vice President 
Phillips commented on the events over the past year and a half, now 
culminating in the final negotiation of a lease for space for the 
Office of the President at One Washington Mall. This action follows 
advertising for bids on two separate occasions by the Superintendent 
of Buildings of the Commonwealth and confirmation from the Attorney 
General of the Board's authority to proceed (Doc. T73-015 ) . The 
designated space comprises 16,000 square feet on two floors with an 
annual rental of $140,000 ($9.00 per square foot). The move is 
essential to provide adequate and appropriate quarters for the Presi- 
dent and his administrative staff who have for some time been 
quartered in extremely cramped space. Chairman Healey confirmed the 
decision of the Committee, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Vice President Franklyn W. Phillips, 
on behalf of the Board of Trustees, to enter into 
a lease for the Office of the President to be 
located at One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts. 

Regarding the Executive Committee's recommendation that he 
be authorized to proceed with the negotiation of a contract with the 
Department of Mental Health (Doc. T73-016 ), Acting Chancellor Hamil- 
ton stated that it will provide financial support for a drug rehabil- 
itation program already in operation at the Student Problem Center, 
UM/Boston. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Acting Chancellor William R. Hamilton 
to enter into an agreement as outlined in Doc. 
T73-016 between the University of Massachusetts, 
UM/Boston, for and in behalf of the Division of 
Health Services, Student Problem Center, and 
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of 
Mental Health, for and in behalf of the Division 
of Drug Rehabilitation. 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reported recommendations of tenure status for 
Sidney Simon (Education), UM/Amherst (Doc. T73-008 ) , and appointments 
with tenure status for Robert J. Swartz (Philosophy, College I) 
(Doc. T73-010 ), Bernard Kramer (Psychology, College II) (Doc. T73-011 
and Robert Kastenbaum (Psychology, College I) (Doc. T73-018 ) , UM/ 
Boston. Recommendation is also made for an offer of an overscale, 
tenured appointment, effective September 1, 1973, to Victor Klee as 
Head of the Mathematics Department, UM/Amherst (Doc. T73-009 ) . On 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions 

involving tenure for Sidney Simon, UM/Amherst; 
and Robert J. Swartz, Bernard Kramer, and 
Robert Kastenbaum, UM/Boston, as detailed in 
Document T73-013 , which is herewith attached to

It was then 

VOTED : To approve an offer to Professor Victor Klee

Mathematics, both effective September 1, 1973. 

Treasurer Johnson, for the Committee on Finance, reported 
that endowment fund investments have been executed amounting to 
approximately $92,000, of which approximately $60,000 was from the 
sale of land from the Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln Trust, approved 
by vote of the Trustees at the meeting of June 28, 1972. 

In addition, a profit has been realized on the sale of 
stock received by the University as a bequest from George M. and 
Edith H. Codding. This stock is being recovered by The Bartlett 
Realty Company, Inc., and The F. A. Bartlett Tree Expert Company. 

The Finance Committee recommended the acceptance of a 
scholarship fund bequest from Professor Richard C. Foley at UM/ 
Amherst (Doc. T73-004 ) . On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To establish an Endowment Fund/Amherst in 
accordance with the bequest of $5,000 from 
Professor Richard C. Foley to be known as the 
R. C. Foley Scholarship Fund, the income 
therefrom to be awarded by the Scholarship 
Committee of the College of Agriculture to the 
senior majoring in Veterinary and Animal 
Sciences who ranks academically in the top 20 
percent of departmental seniors on the basis 
of three years of work, all taken at the 
University in Amherst, and who has shown 
exceptional qualities of leadership and high 
character; this award is to be made without 
regard to the financial need of the individual.

The Treasurer reviewed the background of the recommendation 
for the establishment of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Trust Fund/ 
Medical School, as a repository for a gift of approximately $26,000. 
This allocation will come from a portion of the bequest made by the 
late Robert Wood Johnson of the firm of Johnson and Johnson to be 
divided this year among four-year medical schools along with an 
amount determined by the number of women students, the number of 
minority students, and the number of students from rural areas. On 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To establish a trust fund on the books of the 

University to be known as the Robert Wood Johnson 
Foundation Trust Fund/Medical School for the 
purpose of receiving and administering any gifts 
to the Medical School by the Robert Wood Johnson 
Foundation. 

As reported to the Finance Committee on August 16, 1972, 
and as detailed in a memorandum (Doc. T73-019 ) attached to the 
minutes of that meeting, Treasurer Johnson requested Trustee approval 
for placing all funds acquired by the University through bequests 
from Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln in the Endowment Fund. Replying 
to a question from Acting Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, Mr. Johnson 
stated that the fund is unrestricted and available University-wide, 
subject to Board approval. Trustee Crowley noted that the intent of 
bequests from alumni would probably be for use on the campus they 
attended. He proposed that the Trustees develop a general policy for 
use of such money, unless the funds are restricted. Chairman Healey 
stressed that circumstances at the time of attendance and/or the 
bequest should be considered. As a close associate of Murray Lincoln 
the Treasurer offered to assist in interpretations related to that 
fund. Mrs. Knowles requested information from Mr. Johnson on 
restricted and unrestricted gifts at the time a policy is to be con- 
sidered by the Trustees. Acting Chancellor Hamilton said that, 
according to the General Laws, income from a restricted endowment 
fund can either be added to the principal or placed in an unrestricted 
loss-and-gain account, unless specified by the bequest. 

After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To accept the memorandum of interpretation desig- 
nated as DOC. T73-019 for the administration of 
and accounting for the land and other gifts and 
bequests of Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln. 

Chairman Rowland of the Committee on Student Activities sai 
the Committee has accepted a recommendation from a Summer 1971 Study 
3roup that the Board clarify its vote of August 10, 1970, concerning 
the expenditure of student activities funds for off-campus activities

VOTED : To rescind the vote of August 10, 1970 (Board 

of Trustees, Permanent Record Books, page 3399), 
which reads as follows : "That it is hereby 
declared to be the policy of the Board of Trustees 
that funds for student activities collected by 
charges authorized by the Board of Trustees be 
expended for the support of activities on or 
closely related to the campus for which the charge 
is made and that no such funds (a) be applied to 
donations of any kind to individuals, groups, or 
organizations for activities off such campus, or 
for the support of programs conducted off such 
campus or (b) be applied to support the candidacy 
of individuals seeking public office. 

It was further 

VOTED : To adopt the policy that funds for student 

activities collected by charges authorized by 
the Board of Trustees be expended for the sup- 
port of on-campus or off-campus activities , 
which are related to the purposes of the Univer- 
sity and the campus for which the charge is 
made. No such funds can be applied to support 
the candidacy of individuals seeking public office. 

Trustee Rowland then proposed the acceptance, as an interim 
of .sure, of the Codes of Student Conduct at both Amherst (DOC. T73- 

and Boston (DOC. T73-006). In the future these codes will be 
presented annually in April. Reports of subject studies underway on

Referring to the October 7, 1971, vote of the Board 
authorizing development of a University of Massachusetts Medallion at 
a cost of $2,000 to be awarded by the Trustees, when merited for dis- 
tinguished service to the University, Trustee Rowland noted the sug- 
gested criteria (DOC. T73-017). The Medallic Art Company of New York 
las now developed an appropriate sketch, the model and dies of which 
ffill cost $2,676.25. Mrs. Rowland requested the necessary approval, 
stating that the medal will be ready for presentation later this fall 
if the Board has a candidate. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the criteria for the award of the University 
Medal for Outstanding Service as listed in DOC. T73-

Continuing with the agenda, the Trustees present signed the 
formal conveyance of land to the Town of Amherst for sewer disposal 
plant expansion. This facility will be used in part by the University 
Approval for the conveyance of the land was voted at the meeting of 
toy 10, 1972. 

Secretary McCartney reported that Trustee Haigis, who was 
lospitalized recently, is now at home, is feeling well, and has spent 
some time at his WHAI office. However, he is not being permitted to 
resume his Trustee activities for a few months. Mr. McCartney also 
called attention to the September issue of National Geographic Maga - 
zine in which an article on the Connecticut Valley includes refer- 
ences to Trustee Lambson's farm and to UM/Amherst. 

Mr. Troy strongly recommended that the Trustees read the 
JM/Amherst 1972 Commencement speech delivered by Henry Steele Com- 
nager entitled "The Crisis of the University," copies of which will 
De distributed by the Office of the Secretary. Mr. Troy added that 
the subject of Professor Commager's address would be valuable for 
iiscussion at a Trustee retreat or informal session.

Dr. Wood mentioned that a ceremony for recognition of 
milding activities at the University's agricultural research faci- 
lities in South Deerfield has been scheduled at 2:00 p.m. He then 
requested comments from the various campus administrators. 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/ Amherst, announced the Search Com- 
nittee's unanimous and strong recommendation of Dr. Robert Gage's 
ippointment as Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. He cited the 
unanimous endorsement of the Executive Committee of the Student Sen- 
ate and added his own support on behalf of Dr. Gage, who has been 
serving in an acting capacity for the past year. Declaring that this 
epresents a significant step toward building a viable and first- 
:lass administrative team, Dr. Bromery expressed his appreciation to 
he Search Committee and for assistance received from the Student 
senate President, Trustee Ladd and his Executive Committee. On 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Dr. Robert Gage 
as Professor of Public Health, UM, with tenure 
and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, UM, 
effective October 4, 1972. 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton reported that UM/Boston is 
ocusing its attention on the 5300 students enrolled as well as on its 
nove to Columbia Point. Efforts to cooperate with community groups 
Ln working out problems related to the move (transportation, housing, 
;tc.) have resulted in the formation of a Community Task Force. A 
report of studies sponsored jointly by this group and the University 
jffering alternative solutions is expected within a few months. The 
Cask Force is requesting a meeting with the Board as soon as possible 
:o review its concerns and to outline the actual and anticipated pro- 
blems. Dr. Hamilton asked Chairman Healey and President Wood to 
respond to this request; Mr. Healey consented. 

Reporting for Dean Soutter, UM/Worcester, Dr. Saunders 
stated that the early completion of the Power Plant and the Medical 
sciences Building has created budgetary problems. However, various 
rroups, particularly the Worcester Department of Health and the 
American Red Cross Blood Program, have expressed interest in space in 
:he Shaw Building when it is vacated. A shortage of funds for the 
Library has necessitated temporary curtailment of the subscription 
List. The first class of 16 students, now in their third year, are iii 
he clinical portion of the curriculum which takes them into area 
lospitals. Applications for the forty 1973-74 admissions are about 
>5% ahead of last year with a predicted total of 800-1000, all from 
Massachusetts residents. 

Chairman Healey then introduced the first item considered 
>y the Executive Committee, FY 1974 Maintenance Budget (DOC. T73-012). 
le mentioned Governor Sargent's informal comments to the Board during 
:he Trustee luncheon on August 29; also, Secretary Cronin's communica- 
:ion to him of August 31 following the Board's approval of the budget 
recommended by President Wood, and his reply of September 11 assuring 
reconsideration of the budget by the Trustees. The budget was

reviewed by the Executive Committee in executive session on Septem- 
ber 26. Mr. Healey asked Dr. Wood to detail the budgetary process. 

The President stated that substantial revisions in the 
budget process have been effected over the past three years through 
consultation with the campuses. Last year more than $3 million was 
reduced from the campus requests; this year more than $6.6 million. 
Just as important, he stressed the substantial strengthening and 
increased effectiveness of the budgetary processes at the campus 
levels and the improved administrative capabilities that assured 
effective control over spending. He commended the five-year plan of 
the Medical School as an example of the long-range approach being 
undertaken on all campuses. 

At the request of the Chairman, the President said, and in 
response to Secretary Cronin's request, another review was undertaker . 
to verify the essential nature of categories in the FY 1974 Mainten- 
ance Budget Request. Almost 44% of the budget increase relates to 
the opening and operation of new buildings at Columbia Point and the 
Medical School and to increases in the cost of living; 19% of the 
budget increase is applied to the growth in enrollment established 
according to BHE projections; less than 4%, to required innovations; 
and 6% to increasing administrative capabilities, at the campus 
level. Dr. Wood stressed the Trustees' reaffirmation of the budget 
as a totally responsible and effective request but identified two 
areas — library books and binding, and financial aid — which had been 
subject to inadequate appropriation in the past. Holding these items! 
at the FY 1973 levels would save almost $5.7 million; however, the 
amounts as submitted are based on actual need. He noted the possible 
availability of federal aid and state revenue and asked that the 
budget be channeled through the normal Executive review process . 
(A Trustee statement is attached as Document T73-043.) 

Chairman Healey emphasized that the Board is sympathetic 
to the fiscal dilemma of the Commonwealth; however, it must provide 
for completion of the Medical School and Columbia Point in accord- 
ance with plans made 10 years ago. For maximum use of these faci- 
lities, as well as those at UM/Amherst, provision must be made for 
high-quality, low-cost, public education in line with projected 
enrollments on all campuses. Declaring that the Board has carried 
out its responsibilities to the Governor, to the Secretary of Educa- 
tional Affairs, and to the people of the Commonwealth, Mr. Healey 
stated the motion and it was seconded, and discussion followed. 

Trustee Shaler referred to the traditional Trustee budget 
review and submission process and expressed his hope that in the 
future the budget would not be returned for reconsideration prior to 
its being formally transmitted to the Executive Branch. Secretary 
Cronin explained that Governor Sargent, as an ex officio member of 
the Board, had intended his suggestions and those of the Carnegie 
Commission report to be of assistance, not only in this, but also in 
subsequent budget reviews. He said that the Governor's remarks on 
August 29 were made as a Trustee, and not as Governor. He did not

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

wish to submit the University's budget to the Executive Branch with- 
out allowing the Board sufficient opportunity for reconsideration. 
Dr. Cronin pointed out that the amount expected from federal revenue 
sharing will not be plentiful; also, that much of it is already 
committed. 

Trustee Ladd declared that even the FY 1974 budget as sub- 
mitted was not sufficient to provide the kind of quality education 
students should expect to receive at the University. He stated that, 
while many of the Carnegie Commission's proposals are good, they can- 
not be implemented quickly. Quality, not economy, should be stressed 
when considering innovations. The Commonwealth must expect to pay 
for the best education possible for its young people. They are the 
ones most affected by substantial budget cuts, he concluded. 

Replying to Trustee Boyden's question about the extent of 
alumni and parental giving, President Wood referred to a study of 
this area being undertaken by Vice President Lashman and a proposed 
Trustee Council being discussed with Treasurer Johnson. If resources 
materialize, it is hoped that they can be allocated to areas which 
would not otherwise be developed. 



Dr. Wood emphasized that the maintenance funds of the Univer- 
sity account for only 3.6% of the total budget of the Commonwealth. 

It was then 

VOTED : (1) To ask that the Secretary of Educational Affairs 
incorporate the University of Massachusetts Main- 
tenance Budget for FY 1974 in the budget review pro- 
cess for the Executive Budget; 

(2) to instruct the University administration to 
explore with state and community colleges and with 
appropriate private institutions of higher learning 
collaborative efforts and future enrollment 
capacities; and 

(3) to instruct all offices of the University to 
undertake every economy consistent with continued 
development of the educational program. 

Secretary Cronin thanked the Board for the additional 
review and verified that the budget will now go to the Executive 
Branch, i.e., Secretary of Administration and himself. Discussion 
sessions will be scheduled with President Wood and his staff. He 
expressed his hope that the Trustees will continue to act as 
"advocates of education" as well as "guardians of the public purse" 
in supplying an economical, humane education to students. He 
repeated the invitation that the Trustees attend a meeting on 
October 14 with the Governor and his staff and Trustees of insti- 
tutions in the state for the purpose of discussing a number of vital 
issues in the area of higher education.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. Cronin stated his support of efforts for collaboration 
among public and private colleges to minimize duplication of effort 
and expense. He thanked President Wood and his staff for assistance 
in exploring this source. Chairman Healey assured Secretary Cronin 
that the Trustees are equally interested in developing economical 
long-range plans, but that they cannot abruptly withdraw support of 
the campus development already in process. 

At Chairman Healey 's request, Acting Chancellor Hamilton, 
UM/Boston, presented his request for Approval of Tuition Scholarships ;. 



There are more than 100 foreign students on the Boston campus, a 
situation encouraged by that administration as being beneficial to 
all concerned. Of these, a few are in need for scholarship tuitions 
since none can receive any state or other financial aid. On motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve six tuition scholarships for foreign 
students at UM/Boston. 

Dr. Hamilton then presented the University Assembly Con- 
stitution, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-030) , for approval. This document is 
the result of a year of study and discussion and was approved by 
votes of the students and faculty this past spring. Although evolv- 
ing from the University Senate Constitution, it represents consider- 
able tightening up of concepts and procedures. The Executive Com- 
mittee at its meeting of September 26 raised serious questions on 
certain parts of the document, particularly as related to Section IV 
"Powers of the Assembly," and Section VIII, "Relations of Assembly 
and Chancellor." However, Dr. Hamilton urged approval by the Board 
at this time to permit the establishment of a functioning governance 
system on the UM/Boston campus. 

President Wood stated that the proposed Constitution has 
been reviewed in his office and is satisfactory in that it provides 
a standard for governance on the Boston campus. Dr. Wood proposed 
that the Board adopt the Constitution in principle to provide 
activation of the governance procedures on the Boston campus, but 
that the Trustees would retain the right to ask for further clari- 
fication and interpretation and revision of those sections about 
which they may have reservations. Throughout the process, the 
Trustees would try to make certain that the policies adopted by the 
University Assembly are commensurate to the powers conferred. 

Chairman Healey, while having no doubt of intent, explainei 
his concern about the language in the document, specifically those 
sections requiring action by the President and/or the Chancellor to 
negate policies adopted by the Assembly. He stated that his approvafL 
in principle is conditioned upon the understanding that the policies 
referred to in Sections IV and VIII are the same. Acting Chancellor 
Hamilton stated that he will provide the Board with clarification 
from the Assembly for further consideration. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED ; To approve in principle the Constitution of the 
University Assembly at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston, subject to clarification, 
interpretation, and possible revision by the 
Trustees to be made after further study. 

President Wood presented the next agenda item, Authorization 
for University Counsel to Initiate Litigation. He reported that 



during the past year, the University has been requested to join with 
other institutions of higher education in actions aimed at preserving 
academic integrity. There is also a foreseeable need in such areas 
as residency and financial autonomy to initiate litigation. 



It was, therefore, moved, seconded, and 



VOTED : That the Counsel to the University be and he is 

hereby authorized to initiate litigation on behalf 
of the Trustees at the direction of the President 
or, in his absence, a Vice President, with prior 
notice by Counsel at a regular or special meeting 
of the Board of Trustees, provided, however, that in 
case of emergency Counsel to the University may 
initiate litigation providing that he informs the 
Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees . 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reported on University-wide consideration and 
review over the past several months looking toward a redefinition of 
the tenure policy in the light of multiple and evolving campuses. At 
its meeting on September 22, Ms. Robinson, Assistant to the President 
discussed with the Committee the various suggestions and options 
along with a draft statement on policy. Following further intensive 
discussion on the campuses, Mr. Troy expects that a recommendation 
for the Board will emerge from the next meeting of his Committee. He 
assured the Board that "this difficult and sensitive issue is being 
handled with thoroughness and care and that all appropriate consulta- 
tions are being made." Objectives include provision of an overall 
plan for the future University "with the awareness that faculties 
nust be continually renewed from within." The Committee will continu^ 
its discussion, particularly along the line of questions raised at 
its recent meeting; i.e., student participation in evaluating faculty 
for tenure, definition of the "service" criterion, etc. Mr. Troy 
mentioned the consensus that greater weight than in the past should 
be given to service in relation to teaching and scholarship; however, 
the definition of appropriate "service" must be carefully spelled out 

Mr. Troy then requested approval of the Name Change ; 
Department of Recreation to Department of Leisure Studies and Service 



UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-024). Many other universities, courses, and 
publications use this term of reference. On motion made and seconded 
it was

Recreation to the Department of Leisure Studies and 
Services, UM/ Amherst.

tions. Interest is expected through the Five-College Program and no 
additional costs or space needs are involved. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve a major in Afro-American Studies in the 

W. E. B. DuBois Department of Afro-American Studies, 
School of Humanities and Fine Arts, UM/Amherst. 

The Committee also recommended approval of the Proposals 
for Majors in Judaic Studies and in Near Eastern Studies, UM/Amherst 



(DOC. T73-021). Both are interdisciplinary and interdepartmental, 
drawing upon a wide range of interests. Other than the language 
requirement, the courses resemble the independent study programs. 
At the present time, implementation of both programs is possible 
within the existing resources in the Five-College Community. On 
motion made and seconded , it was 

VOTED : To approve Majors in Judaic Studies and in Near 
Eastern Studies in the School of Humanities and 
Fine Arts, UM/Amherst. 

Trustee Troy then presented the following Tenure Appoint- 
ments for approval: at UM/Amherst, Dr. Donald R. Progulske as Head 
of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management, and at UM/ 
Boston, Dr. Ruth Mirolli as Associate Professor in the Department of 
Art. Both come with outstanding qualifications and are highly recom- 
mended by the respective Search Committees. On motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Donald R. Progulske 
as Head, Department of Forestry and Wildlife 
Management , with tenure as Professor "A" in the 
same department, UM/Amherst, effective October 4, 1972. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the appointment of Dr. Ruth Mirolli, 

Associate Professor, Department of Art, with tenure, 
UM/Boston, effective January 25, 1973. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to, or repealed by the Board 
of Trustees with respect to professional personnel 
under provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws as 
amended by Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, 
salary range, and descriptive job specification for 
each position to which a member of the professional 
staff is hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, or 

determined shall be as hereafter determined by the 
Board of Trustees or under their authority.

In closing his report, Mr. Troy noted Trustee Abrams ' con- 
cern with the encouragement of minority-race students in undergraduat^ 
preparation for entrance into the Medical School. Vice Chancellor 
Gluckstern will provide the Committee with information for discussion 
on this matter at its next meeting. 

Trustee Ladd, a member of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, added that he had urged the Provosts to strive 
for more careful and substantive documentation of teaching perfor- 
nance of candidates for tenure appointments. 

Secretary Cronin conveyed the Governor's appreciation of 
service to the Commonwealth by Edward Gilfillan, research scientist 
at the University's Gloucester Marine Station, for his prompt 
detection and reporting of the recent "red tide" infestation. 

Trustee Crowley, reporting for the Committee on Finance, 
stated that the Fund Transfer for the Disadvantaged Students Program 
(DOC T73-034) is being requested because the appropriation was made 
to the wrong accounts although the request identified the correct 
ones. On motion made and seconded, it was

The Committee is also recommending approval of the Rate 
Change — Campus Center Accommodation Services, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73- 



032) which is intended to give the management certain latitude for 
rate adjustment as related to availability of rooms. On motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To grant to the Chancellor, UM/Amherst, authority 
to deviate from existing rates established for the 
Campus Center Accommodation Services for groups of 
10 or more persons and according to the following 
schedule: 

a. Minimum rates of $12 for double occupancy may 
be offered during periods of the year when low 
occupancy is expected. 

b. Minimum rates for single occupancy of $10 per 
room may be offered under the same circumstances. 

Deviation from established rates will, in each case, 
be subject to approval by the Chancellor.

Trustee Crowley then requested approval for one year of the 
change in the Top of the Campus Membership Fee, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73- 
033) from $1.00 to $5.00 for eligible members other than regular 
Campus Center Fee-paying students. Trustee Ladd expressed his 
approval of this step toward equalizing financial responsibility for 
campus services. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Top of the Campus, Inc., UM/ Amherst, 
membership fee for the 1972-73 academic year at one 
dollar ($1.00) for all students otherwise eligible 
for membership who have paid a regular Campus Center 
Fee, and five dollars ($5.00) for all other persons 
eligible for membership; and further, that the 
Board of Directors of Top of the Campus, Inc., be 
charged to review and evaluate the consequences of 
such a membership fee schedule, and report its 
findings to the membership not later than the 1973 
annual meeting of Top of the Campus, Inc., such 
report to include a recommendation for membership 
fees to be charged for the 1973-74 academic year. 

In the absence of Chairman Haigis , President Wood reported 
for the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. He requested Board 
approval of the Schematic Drawings for Building 030, UM/Boston 
(College of Public and Community Service ) , and the Preliminary 
Drawings for Building 120, UM/Boston (Physical Education ) . These are

the first two buildings brought to the Board since the reevaluation 
of the Columbia Point development. Revisions in the original Master 
Plan have taken into consideration the major shifts in the area of 
ghigher education generally as well as in the specific role of UM/ 
Boston. Every effort has been made to maintain flexibility in this 
as in all other areas of University concern. The President then 
asked Acting Chancellor Hamilton for his comments. 

Dr. Hamilton reminded the Trustees and others present that 
the architects of Buildings 030 and 120 would be available after the 
meeting for questions and comments. He stated that the academic 
review process will be strengthened by the development of the Univer- 
sity Assembly and noted that, for the first time at UM/Boston, a Dean 
(Dr. Strange) has been able to take an active part in the design of 
his College buildings. 

In addition, the Acting Chancellor informed the Board that 
Frank O'Brien, who has been responsible for the UM/Boston building 
program, has been appointed Special Assistant to the Acting Chan- 
cellor to coordinate the move to Columbia Point. Mr. Willard Prince 
is now serving as Acting Director of Planning and Development. In 
recognition of Mr. O'Brien's commendable service, it was moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED : To extend to Frank O'Brien the warmest appreciation 
for past services and best wishes of the Board of 
Trustees for his continued success as Special 
Assistant to Acting Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Continuing the presentation on Buildings 030 and 120, UM/ 
Boston, Harold Roth, architectural consultant, directed attention to 
the preliminary drawings of the Physical Education facility (Building 
120) submitted by Anderson-Notter Associates and the schematic 
drawings of the College of Public and Community Service (Building 030|) 
submitted by Coletti Brothers. Both respond to the intended educa- 
tional program and to the overall Master Plan for Columbia Point and 
combine efficiency with economy. Responding to questions from 
Trustee Boyden, Acting Chancellor Hamilton explained that the basic 
building concept at UM/Boston has been to structure each College 
within one building to accommodate about 2500 students with an out- 
look to future expansion. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the schematic drawings for Building 030 

(College of Public and Community Serviee) at Columbia 
Point, UM/Boston. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve the preliminary drawings of Building 120 
(Physical Education) at Columbia Point, UM/Boston. 



Trustee Rowland, Chairman of the Committee on Student 
Activities, requested a brief meeting of her Committee on October 23 
prior to the Retreat sessions. She also indicated that an informal 
meeting is being planned during the SWAP Conference on November 17. 



Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, presented the lists of candi 
dates for undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates of 
advanced graduate study, effective September 1, 1972. He made 
special mention of the three degrees being awarded by the Division of 
Continuing Education — the first under the Career Opportunities Pro- 
gram. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That all candidates for undergraduate and graduate 
degrees and certificates of advanced graduate study 
as of September 1, 1972, and as certified respectively 
by the Office of the Registrar, the Director of 
Continuing Education, and the Graduate School, be 
awarded the appropriate degree or certificate of 
study as detailed respectively in Documents T73-036, 
T73-037, and T73-041, subject to such revisions as 
may later be deemed necessary.

processed by the Boston campus to the State Comptroller. 

In the absence of Trustee Gordon, the Board's representativ 
to the Board of Higher Education, President Wood reported that he 
has attended several meetings over the past few weeks at which the 
tuition issue and related problems have been discussed. The subject 
has now been referred by the Advisory Commission of BHE for inten- 
sive study by a committee of Trustees, faculty, and students from 
the member institutions. 

Dr. Wood also informed the Board that, pursuant to a major 
recommendation in a November 1971 report concerning the strengthening 
of alumni activity, a Trustee Council composed of 20 major civic and 
community leaders has been formed. This group, chaired by Robert 
Spiller, President of The Boston Five Cents Saving Bank and a Univer- 
sity alumnus, will serve in .a wholly advisory and counseling capacity 
and will forward their recommendations to the Trustees for considera- 
tion. 

Chairman Healey urged the Trustees to attend the conference 
at Framingham State College on October 14 being sponsored by the 
Executive Office of Educational Affairs. 

Secretary McCartney mentioned that additional material will 
soon be mailed to the Board concerning the Retreat planned in late 
October.

General Maginnis- 
Citation on 
Resignation 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

John Maginnis began his career in the academic world teaching 
economics at his Alma Mater, then the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College. A few years later, he turned to a successful 
industrial career in Worcester. Finally, he entered public 
service — first as State Director of Civil Defense in Massa- 
chusetts, and finally as National Director of Civil and 
Defense Mobilization. 

In his military service in both the first and second World 
Wars, he received the highest citations and decorations from the 
governments of the United States, France, and Belgium. He 
was commissioned a Major General in 1957. 

John Maginnis has always been a loyal son of the University 
of Massachusetts. He served as President of the Associate 
Alumni from 1964 to 1966. In 1969, in recognition of his 
long, distinguished career, he was awarded the Honorary 
L.L.D. Degree by his Alma Mater. 

Despite his multiple vocations in military and public service 
he has always maintained a broad interest in community and 
social affairs, reading and traveling widely. Between all 
these activities, he wrote a book on his experiences in 
military office in Europe. 

John Maginnis, therefore, brought to this Board of Trustees 
loyalty, integrity, distinction, and expertise. His consider- 
able knowledge and good judgment have been invaluable. He has 
served actively and faithfully on the most important committees 
of the Board . He was given the important assignment of Chair- 
man of the Search Committee for the first state-wide President 
of the University of Massachusetts, President Wood. 

As he leaves the Board, we are heartened that General Maginnis 
has not yet ended his career. We know that he will be willing 
to continue to serve the University whenever his services are 
required in the future. 

We wish him godspeed. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To instruct the Secretary to set forth in the record 
of this meeting the preceding citation in recognition 
of the public service and contribution to higher 
education of Major General John J. Maginnis as a 
member of the Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts from 1965 to 1972. 

In response, General Maginnis reviewed his associations 
with the University since 1914 as a student, alumnus, teacher, and 
Trustee-,, particularly during the past decade of growth. He com- 
mended the Board for its accomplishments in bringing the University 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

to its present stature. He noted especially the dedication of 
Trustees Haigis, Pumphret, and Troy as chairmen of committees on 
which he had served. He praised Trustee Healey's unique fitness 
and outstanding service as Chairman of the Board and offered to 
assist the Trustees and the University in any way that he could in 
the future. 

President Wood expressed his personal respect and appreci- 
ation for General Maginnis's service to the University. 

Referring to the tenure policy to be discussed later in the 
meeting, Dr. Wood called it "one of the most far-reaching actions 
taken by the Board of Trustees in recent years." The President 
acknowledged the efforts of Provost Gluckstern (UM/Amherst) , Acting 
Chancellor Marshall and Professor Katz (UM/Boston) , Vice President 
Edelman, and Ms. Robinson in bringing it about. 

Dr. Wood then reviewed the Durham Declaration (DOC. T73- 
076), a statement of inter-institutional collaboration recently 
issued by the Presidents of the six Land-Grant Colleges and Univer- 
sities of New England, identifying as specific areas: (1) graduate 
school developments, (2) region-wide professional schools located at 
a single site, (3) Continuing Education and Extension Programs, (4) 
international programs, and (5) the open university concept. A 
report of a study of these areas being made by Don Nicoll of Maine 
will be ready for Trustee consideration early in 1973. 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, announced the acceptance 
of an invitation to the UMASS football team to participate in the 
Boardwalk Bowl at Atlantic City, New Jersey* on December 9. He 
reported that, for fifty Spanish-speaking CCEBS students at UM/ 
Amherst, classes in various subjects are being conducted in that 
language to facilitate academic progress. 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton conveyed the appreciation of 
UM/Boston to General Maginnis for his role in developing the 
Columbia Point campus as a member of the Trustee Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds . 

Reporting for the Executive Committee, Chairman Healey 
recommended adoption of the Procedures Governing Appearances Before 
the Board of Trustees (DOC. T73-071) . Although normal governance 



Vice 



matters are handled at the administrative and/or campus level, this 
document provides a route for those cases requiring Board attention 
as "Communications and Petitions." The policy also protects the 
rights and interests of both the Board and all persons who wish to 
appear before the Board. 

Trustee Ladd declared that persons intent on disrupting 
meetings of the Board will not follow any rules; nevertheless, a 
clear statement of procedures is helpful. He stated that his 
affirmative vote is subject to the conditions that the Chairman will 
be flexible and that the procedures will be widely circulated,

particularly prior to a meeting at which controversy is expected; 
also, that the student Trustees still have the privilege of placing 
items on the agenda. 



VOTED : 



It was then moved, seconded, and 

To adopt the policy paper on Procedures Governing 
Appearances Before the Board of Trustees (DOC. T73- 
071), effective as of November 21, 1972. 

Acting Vice Chancellor Hamilton presented the College I and 



College II Constitutions, UM/Boston , for approval by the Board. 



These documents received overwhelming approval in faculty and student 
referenda. They follow in principle the outline of the University 
Assembly Constitution approved by the Board of Trustees at the meet- 
ing of October 4, 1972. President Wood added his endorsement of the 
Constitutions, at the same time stating that they do not complete 
the governance process for the entire University and may require 
adjustments later, depending on reports now under study. Chairman 
Healey proposed approval in principle, subject to further Trustee 
study and the taking into account of the recommendations of the 
Pan-campus Committee on Governance. 

It was, therefore, moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To approve in principle the Constitutions of 

College I (DOC. T73-070A) and College II (DOC. 
T73-070B) at the University of Massachusetts/ 
Boston, subject to clarification, interpretation, 
and possible revision by the Trustees to be made 
after further study. 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy presented the Tenure Policy Review and Proposed 
Trustee Statement on Tenure (DOC. T73-069). The proposed policies 



would relate the award of tenure to the long-range plans of the 
University, the campus, the school or college and the department. 
He pointed out that this is an important step in developing the 
University's capacity for educational change and flexibility in the 
1970' s. The Trustee policy would also place fresh emphasis on 
"distinction in teaching and in service to the University and the 
Commonwealth . " 

In brief, the Trustee statement would stress: 

that weight will be given not only to the quality of 
scholarship, but to distinction in teaching and in 
service to the University and the Commonwealth, and 

that all recommendations will be considered in the 
context of the overall needs and long-range plans of 
the department, the school or college, and the campus 
as a whole. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

This would meet the University's need for faculties which 
are "continually renewed from within." 

The Committee will shortly be reviewing campus presentations 
containing detailed information regarding tenure planning, review, 
and appeal procedures. The Committee will also expect reports and 
analyses of the development of evaluative mechanisms in the areas of 
teaching and service, the ways in which student participation in 
personnel policy decisions can be broadened, and the use of increased 
incentives for early retirement and/or lowering the mandatory retire- 
nent age. 

On behalf of the Committee, Chairman Troy commended the 
administration and the faculties for their thorough review of this 
sensitive subject and expressed confidence that the new policies will 
strengthen the University in the years ahead. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To adopt the policies and directions as outlined 
in Document T73-069. 

Continuing his report, Mr. Troy stated that the Committee, 
in response to a request from Trustee Ladd, has agreed to hear variou 
spokesmen on the subject of the Rhetoric requirement. The Student 
Senate supports the abolition of the requirement while the Faculty 
Senate supports the requirement (despite the Faculty Senate Academic 
Matters Committee's recommendation to the contrary). Although 
reluctant to reverse the vote of the Faculty Senate to retain the 
requirement, the Committee hopes that providing an opportunity for 
discussion will bring about some form of agreement between the 
divergent schools of opinion. Chairman Healey proposed that con- 
sideration be given to changing the name of the program. 

Turning to the Inter-Institutional Agreement between Hebrew 



College in Brookline and UM/Boston (DOC. T73-061) , Trustee Troy 



stated that the arrangement would provide students from either 
institution with access to courses at no additional tuition. This 
will meet the needs for religious studies at UM/Boston and linguistic 
and classical studies at the Hebrew College. A Planning and Evalu- 
ation Committee will oversee the program during the trial period of 
February 1973 to July 1974 and will report results and make recom- 
mendations. Mr. Troy expressed the hope that similar agreements may 
soon evolve with other institutions in the Boston area. 

It was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To authorize Acting Chancellor William R. Hamilton 
to enter into an inter-institutional agreement 
between the University of Massachusetts at Boston 
and Hebrew College, as outlined in DOC. T7 3-061.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The final item recommended by the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy was the Graduate Program in Biology, UM/Boston 
(DOC. T73-063) . Although ultimately expected to enroll up to 60 
students in Colleges I and II, only 10-15 can be accommodated at the 
present time. Mr. Troy noted that the strong and progressive faculty 
in Biology works closely with the Departments of Chemistry and 
Psychology and is particularly interested in Marine Biology and the 
Biology of the City. Acting Chancellor Hamilton stressed that the 
program will focus strongly on the resources of the Boston Harbor. 

Chairman Troy said that the Committee will not consider 
additional proposals for graduate degree programs at UM/Boston until 
an overall policy concerning graduate activities is established. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve an M.S. Program in Biology, UM/Boston, 
as outlined in DOC. T73-063. 

Trustee Crowley, as Acting Chairman of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds, noted that this is the customary time when the 
capital outlay reviews are made. Since no state capital outlay bud- 
get was submitted by the Executive Department to the General Court 
last year, the University's FY 1973 request is still outstanding. 
The building program has proceeded on appropriations based on the FY 
1972 request. Continuing reviews of capital requirements and buildinjg 
programs by the Administration and the Trustees show that present 
requirements will not exceed (and, in some important instances, shouljd 
be less than) those contained in last year's budget. With certain 
new and urgent priorities emerging on the various campuses , the 
Committee recommends continuing review and the development of a plan 
of University requirements for the next five years. 



It was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED ; That the thorough review of University develoments, 
requirements, and investments over the next five 
years presently underway be continued in the Presi- 
dent's Office and at the campuses, and that a pre- 
sentation of these studies be made to the Trustees 
at an early date. 

The Committee also recommended approval to proceed with the 
Site Development and Construction Drawings of a Nonpermanent Facility 



Supporting the Department of Transportation Demonstration Bus 
Operation, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-059). The building will house 10 
buses and other facilities related to an expanded no-fare bus system 
at the Amherst campus. The gift from the Peter Pan Bus Company of a 
small, plexiglass shelter for passengers was noted. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To approve the site development and construction draw- 
ings of a nonpermanent facility supporting the Depart- 
ment of Transportation bus operation, UM/Amherst, as 
outlined in DOC. T73-059.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Pumphret, reporting for the Committee on Finance, 
recommended approval of a change in the Room Rent Refund Policy, UM / 
Amherst (DOC. T73-067). Vice Chancellor Campion, in presenting the 
request to the Committee, had stated that all other fees, except 
health insurance, have their schedules prorated over the first five 
weeks of the academic semester. The proposed room rent refund policy 
conforms to such a schedule. Exceptions continue to be granted only 
for "involuntary entry into military service or other reason of 
extreme emergency." Under the proposed policy, it is expected that 
fewer students will seek exceptions for emergencies. Mr. Healey 
verified that Chancellor Bromery and the Student Senate Rents and 
Fees Committee, UM/ Amherst, have indicated approval of the changes. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the following vote taken on April 21, 1966, be 

rescinded: That the charges established by the fore- 
going votes shall not be refundable to a student 
after he has occupied his assigned accommodation 
except upon certificate of the Dean of Students 
that such student has withdrawn from the University 
because of involuntary entry into military service 
or other reason of extreme emergency, the refund 
in such event to be the balance of the charge paid 
over that applicable to the period of actual 
occupancy plus one week. 

It was also 

VOTED : That student room rent refunds shall be refundable 
according to the following instructions: Any stu- 
dent who occupies his/her assigned accommodations 
and subsequently leaves the University prior to the 
end of the first full class week shall automatically 
be charged a minimum of $100 for his/her room. Any 
student who leaves the University during the second 
through fifth weeks shall be charged $100 plus 20% 
of the remaining balance for each week or part thereof . 
No refunds will be made after the fifth week of the 
academic semester. Refunds will be made during the 
refund period only to students who officially with- 
draw from the University through the Registrar's 
Office and according to the Registrar's official 
withdrawal date. The Dean of Students' Office 
will be authorized to make exception to the above 
only for reasons of involuntary entry into military 
service or for reasons of "extreme emergency." Any 
exception made, however, shall not apply to the $100 
minimum charge which shall be levied in all cases 
automatically .

The Committee also recommended that the Chancellor, UM/ 
Amherst, be authorized to set rates for parking meters installed on 
that campus. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Chancellor, UM/ Amherst, to 

establish parking meter rates for the UM/Amherst 
campus . 

Chairman Pumphret also reported that the Finance Committee 
has authorized Treasurer Johnson to purchase stock as follows: 
American Cyanamid, 200 Shares; General Electric, 100 Shares; and 
Honeywell, 100 Shares. 

Chairman Rowland, speaking for the Committee on Student 
Activities, said that they will be meeting at the UM/Boston campus 
in December to consider areas of concern brought to them by Trustee 
Kelly and Acting Chancellor Hamilton. She thanked the SWAP Committee 
for the friendly hospitality extended to the Committee at their annual 
conference and urged more Trustees to attend next year. 

President Wood requested formal approval of Personnel 
Actions (DOC. T73-056) discussed in executive session. On motion 



made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To confirm and approve the Personnel Actions UM/ 
Amherst, as detailed in Document T73-056 involv- 
ing tenure for Atron A. Gentry and Earl Seidman. 

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject to the 

policies and procedures now in effect as subsequently 
amended, revised, added to, or repealed by the Board 
of Trustees with respect to professional personnel 
under provisions of Chapter 75 of the General Laws 
as amended by Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, 
salary range, and descriptive job specification for 
each position to which a member of the professional 
staff is hereby appointed, promoted, transferred, 
or determined shall be as hereafter determined by the 
Board of Trustees or under their authority. 

Chairman Healey reported that the University is involved 
with an eminent domain proceeding to establish a fair price for the 
17 acres given voluntarily to the Commonwealth by Boston College Higt 
School at the time the Columbia Point campus was established. Press 
notice and rumors on this matter have implied that the school will be 
relocating because the University will eventually take all the pro- 
perty. This has been very disturbing to the President, Father 
Russell, to the Trustees, and to groups associated with the High 
School. Chairman Healey requested authorization from the Board to 
give immediate public notice that the University has no present or 
future plans to acquire additional property from Boston College High 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

School. The University looks forward to continued cooperation and 
pleasant association with the High School as Columbia Point develops. 
Trustee Pumphret suggested that the High School might be interested 
in participating with the Ad Hoc Committee on University/Community 
Relations and the Dorchester/Columbia Point Task Force as they study 
the concerns of the community. Trustee Crowley reported that a 
faculty member from the High School is already on the Task Force. Mij. 
Troy cautioned that the vote should not preclude acceptance by the 
University of further voluntary gifts of Boston College High School 
property. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To authorize Chairman Healey to communicate to 

Father Russell, President of Boston College High 
School, that the Board of Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts has no present or future 
plans to acquire property belonging to the High 
School except as a voluntary gift, and that Father 
Russell may so inform his Trustees, faculty, students, 
and alumni. 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/Amherst, stated for the record his 
feeling of abhorrence at the death of two students at Southern Univei 
sity in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this past week. He deplored the fact 
that such extreme action could occur on a college campus . He 
reported that, during his visit there two weeks ago, a confrontation 
appeared to be imminent; however, in his opinion, inability to secure 
access to the Board of Education for consideration of grievances 
accelerated the situation. Acting Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, 
concurred with Chancellor Bromery 's statements. As proposed by 
Chairman Healey, it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To endorse the statement made by Chancellor Bromery, 
UM/Amherst, expressing abhorrence at the recent death 
of two students at Southern University and to deplore 
the fact that such extreme action could occur on a 
college campus . 

The Trustees then confirmed the recommendation of the 
Executive Committee on nominations for Honorary Degrees at the 1973 
Commencement, UM/Amherst. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the list of nominees and alternates for 
honorary degrees at the UM/Amherst Commencement on 
May 26, 1973, as detailed in a confidential memorandum 
on file in the Office of the Secretary. 



The meeting was adjourned at 3:25 p.m.

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being pre- 
sent and acting throughout, the formal session of the Board was con- 
vened by Chairman Healey at 2:10 p.m. 

The minutes of the previous meeting were presented for 
approval. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of November 21, 
1972. 

Chairman Healey immediately turned to the response of the 
Board to Plan for the Reorganization of Massachusetts Education 
recently proposed by the Executive Office of Educational Affairs of 
the Commonwealth. The Chairman read this statement which had been 
adopted by the Board's Executive Committee this morning. The full 
text follows : 

The Trustees of the University of Massachusetts have reviewed 
and discussed the report of The Secretary for Educational 
and Cultural Affairs regarding the reorganization of the 
educational structure of Massachusetts. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Although we are sympathetic with the Secretary's objectives 
and appreciate his interest in higher education, we find this 
plan to be without substantial merit. 

We will request additional information from the Secretary 
over the next two months before the Governor submits specific 
legislation. We are open to discussion and genuine efforts to 
arrive at mutual understandings. 

We were not a party to the deliberations that produced the plan. 
However, it seems clear that the report does not acknowledge 
and could well reverse the substantial progress the Commonwealth 
has made in educational affairs in the last ten years. Others 
can speak to the steady improvement in elementary and secondary 
schools and the promising efforts to secure equitable educational 
opportunity in metropolitan areas. So far as higher education 
is concerned, however, the Commonwealth can be proud of the 
remarkable growth in service and quality of the community 
colleges, state colleges, and the University. The Trustees 
are proud that the University has had a leading role in this 
development . 

We are not persuaded of the wisdom of combining education 
from kindergarten to graduate school. We believe that the 
cities and towns of the Commonwealth are the proper bodies 
to determine the nature and pace of early education, and 
that high school graduates should have the opportunity to 
enter a variety of state-wide institutions of higher learning. 
Forced integration of all levels of education can only benefit 
an impulse towards a rigid monolithic structure. 

We question the division of the state into five new parts. 
To interpose another political subdivision and another layer 
of bureaucracy for whatever purpose seems to us to make 
genuine participation more and not less difficult. 

We speak from first-hand experience when we say that the 
multitude of boards, their cross-representation, their con- 
fusion of constituency, their demands of time, knowledge and 
energy simply will not work. The Board of Trustees of the 
University of Massachusetts meets in formal sessions 10 
months of the year. Its five committees meet 12 months. To 
expect a mass conglomeration of boards, committees, and com- 
missions substantially to improve performance and save money 
is not realistic. 

We also express our great concern over the way in which the 
report proposes to dismember the University of Massachusetts. 
We have watched firsthand the development of this one-time 
agriculture college into one of the best public universities 
in the United States. We have assisted in the birth of a 
new urban campus and a new medical school, both of which are 
receiving national attention. To sort .these campuses around

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

like building blocks is to disregard the ties of history and 
tradition and the clear evidence of shared strength and joint 
progress. 

As trustees, we are open to recommendations, reforms, or 
reorganization. We are not open to making our educational 
institutions the laboratories for large-scale experimentation 
conducted in the name of economy and efficiency. 

There is real opportunity for state-wide vision, planning, 
and leadership within the general framework which already 
exists. It can work better without sacrificing the essential 
strengths we have achieved. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To express concurrence with the statement of concern 
adopted by the Board's Executive Committee regarding 
the Plan for Reorganization of the administration of 
public education as proposed by the Executive Office 
of Educational Affairs of the Commonwealth. 

Trustee Bicknell is recorded as abstaining from the vote. 

Secretary McCartney then presented an amendment to the 
Bylaws of the Board extending the time period during which the 
Annual Meeting may occur to include the month of March. On motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To amend Article V, Section 2, of the Bylaws of the 
Board of Trustees to read: "The annual meeting of 
the Board of Trustees shall be held in February or 
March." 

Chancellor Bromery, UM/ Amherst, expressed appreciation for 
the years of service to the University by Dean of Women Helen Curtis , 
who retired effective January 31. She will be named Dean Emeritus 
by the Amherst campus administration. Trustee Knowles read the 
following citation which had been presented to Dean Curtis at a 
testimonial dinner early in January. 

WHEREAS your personal service to the welfare and development 
of women students on the University's Amherst campus over 
nearly three decades represents a record of devotion unsur- 
passed in American public higher education, and 

WHEREAS under the beguiling and simplistic title of Dean of 
Women, you have performed myriad functions — as friend, counseloi 
editor, helpmate, supervisor of women's residence halls, con- 
sultant to architects, committee woman, planner of the Univer- 
sity calendar, and coordinator of social activities, and 

WHEREAS your voluntary work has ranged beyond the field of 
student affairs to encompass concern for the welfare of the 
University in the Commonwealth as a whole by virtue of your 
close liaison with the Advisory Council of Women, and 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

WHEREAS you have performed all of these roles , functions , 
and duties with graciousness, distinction, and success, 

NOW, THEREFORE , the Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts herewith expresses its deepest appreciation 
for the selfless career you have spent in the service of 
others, and extends to you its hearty felicitations and 
best wishes on the occasion of your retirement from the 
University on 31 January 1973. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To instruct the Secretary to set forth in the record 
of this meeting the preceding citation in recognition 
of the many years of devoted service to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts by Dean of Women Helen Curtis. 

Lists of candidates for degrees to be awarded as of 
February 1, 1973, having been received and placed on file in the 
Office of the Secretary, on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve undergraduate degrees, UM/ Amherst (DOC. 
T73-106A); graduate degrees, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73- 
106B) ; and degrees awarded by the Division of Con- 
tinuing Education, UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-106C) to 
be awarded as of February 1, 1973, subject to 
certification by the appropriate office, UM/Amherst; 
and further to approve undergraduate degrees , UM/ 
Boston (DOC. T73-106D) subject to certification by 
the Registrar, UM/Boston. 

President Wood reported that the University of Massachusett 
budget recommended by Secretary Cronin to the Governor is 89 million 
dollars or a 19.5% increase over the 1973 appropriation. It con- 
tains 696 new positions and makes provision for an additional 1,930 
students, an increase of 7.3% based on a total enrollment of 28,059. 
This budget makes provision for maintaining the quality of the 
educational programs on the three campuses and for the opening of the 
Columbia Point campus; also, the Clinical Science Building and the 
Power Plant at the Medical School. However, the President said, 
there are insufficient funds to support the financial aid program and 
the library. With federal educational grants sharply reduced, serious 
thought must be given to additional sources of student aid. 

For UM/Amherst, Chancellor Bromery reported on the recent 
fire in Tobin Hall (damage estimated at more than $100,000, includ- 
ing a small computer) . Repairs will be completed in about three 
months . 

Dr. Bromery announced a program for handicapped persons, 
particularly disabled Vietnam veterans, consisting of academic and 
counseling support services (including cooperation with off-campus 
services) and continuing provision of suitable physical facilities.

Merit Increases 

FY 1974 

(DOC. T73-089) 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chancellor also announced the appointment of Mr. Barry W. 
Averill as Director of University Health Services, UM/Amherst, 
succeeding Dr. Gage, now Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Anothejr 
change at UM/Amherst, effective January 1, was the designation of the 
Department of Security as the Department of Public, Safety, this being 
considered more appropriate for a college campus. 

For UM/Boston, Acting Chancellor Hamilton reported that, 
with continued cooperation of the BBC and the contractors , the 
Columbia Point campus will be opening in September 1973 with 6,000 
students. It is hoped that construction of the interchange between 
the campus and Morrissey Boulevard will be started soon. Dr. Hamil- 
ton noted that the Trustee Ad Hoc Committee on University-Community 
Relations has met once with members of the Dorchester-Columbia Point 
Task Force. A report prepared for the Task Force by Justin Gray 
Associates has been distributed for study and discussion. Recom- 
mendations will be brought to the Trustees later. 

Dean Soutter stated that he had nothing to report at this 
time for UM/Worcester. 

Concerning Merit Increases, FY 1973 (DOC. T73-089), Presi- 
dent Wood commented that the campuses are being notified of merit 
awards granted under the same guidelines in effect last year. He 
expressed appreciation, especially to the UM/Boston administration, 
for suggestions submitted to assist in updating the University's 
general merit award policy. These suggestions are being considered 
by the Executive Committee and will be brought to the Board at a 
later datej 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : That, in view of the need to serve the many purposes 
for which the University's Merit Increase appro- 
priation was intended, the President is authorized 
to implement a Merit Increase Pay Plan for pro- 
fessional employees up to a maximum state-funded 
expenditure of $691,881, and is authorized to 
implement merit increases for professional employees 
paid from non-state funds at a comparable rate. 
In implementing this plan, the President's authority 
is subject to appropriate Federal Wage Stabilization 
Guidelines . 

It was further 

VOTED : To delegate authority to the President to classify 
those professional positions for which a specific 
weekly salary rate or a limited weekly salary range 
presently exists solely as required to permit the 
implementation, effective February 4, 1973, of the 
merit increase recommendations of the President, 
the Chancellors, and the Dean of the Medical School. 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy presented the Personnel Policy for Professiona 
flonacademic Staff (DOC. T73-090) . He described this document as an 



if fort to restate, clarify, and strengthen the terms by which persons 
Ln the nonacademic professional category are employed and recognized. 
Dn motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve and adopt as the policy of the University 
of Massachusetts those provisions in the areas of 
employment security, classification system, annual 
evaluation procedures , and personnel policy and 
review contained in Document T73-090, said provisions 
to constitute a personnel policy for professional 
nonacademic staff. The President of the University 
is requested to take appropriate steps to implement 
this policy at the University. 

The report of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
olicy was presented by its Chairman, Trustee Troy. 

Approval was recommended of the Title of Associate at the 
fedical School (DOC. T73-064) , to provide voluntary (unpaid) faculty 
fith appointments falling between the levels of Instructor and 
Assistant Professor. This item had previously been deferred because 
)f a possible conflict with the title of Research Associate in use 
it UM/ Amherst; however, no problem is now anticipated. On motion made 
md seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the titles of Associate and Clinical 

Associate for use by the Medical School, UM/Worcester. 

Chairman Troy reported that the Committee had determined 
that appointments without compensation can be made for periods of more 
than a year or for an indefinite period under existing procedures. 
This was in response to Dean Soutter's concern that renewal forms 
for about 150 voluntary faculty comprising the so-called "Courtesy 
Jtaff" must be prepared each year. 

Turning to the Salary Range for Faculty Chairmen in the 
Departments of Radiology, Anesthesiology, and Pathology, UM/Worcester 



(DOC. T73-104), Mr. Troy stated that the recommended salary ceiling 
(from all sources) limit of $65,000 for faculty chairmen in the above 
lepartments will bring the combined maximum earnings of these individ 
lals into line with departments at other institutions, thus permitting 
the Medical School to remain competitive in securing the best qualified 
persons. It was emphasized that this will not increase the amount 
jaid by the state, but simply permits retention by these faculty mem- 
bers of a larger amount in salary from a combination of outside sources 
Including hospital and patient and/or related fees. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve $65,000 as the combined maximum earnings 
limit (hospital, patient and/or other related fees, 
and teaching) for faculty chairmen in the Departments 
of Radiology, Anesthesiology, and Pathology at the 
Medical School, UM/Worcester.

The Committee also recommended the Creation of a Department 
3f Genetics, UM/Worcester (DOC. T73-105). The field of genetics is 



jecoming increasingly recognized by medical schools for specialized 
study. Dr. Tipper, UM/Worcester, had stressed to the Committee the 
Importance of complete and thorough instruction from faculty with 
rime responsibility for the genetics program. Trustee Croce noted 
:hat several advanced hospitals have also created genetics depart- 
ments. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the creation of a Department of Genetics 
at the Medical School, UM/Worcester. 

Trustee Troy then presented the Part-time Appointment with 
Cenure for Dr. John B. Herrmann, UM/Worcester (DOC. T7 3-103). Dr. 



lerrmann has agreed to establish an Educational Fund with certain 
earnings (from combined sources) in excess of $45,000, of which 
?11,250 only would be paid by the Medical School. This procedure is 
commonly used by medical schools to secure the services of distin- 
guished physicians who wish to devote part of their time to teaching 
and research. The agreement will be reviewed for renewal after one 
fear. Dean Soutter noted that the City Hospital of Worcester and the 
Medical School had collaborated in securing Dr. Herrmann as Head 
Surgeon at the hospital and as a professor at UM/Worcester. Trustee 
Croce spoke very highly of Dr. Herrmann's ability. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the appointment of Dr. John B. Herrmann, 
part-time with tenure, in the Department of Surgery 
at the Medical School, UM/Worcester, effective 
September 1, 1972. 

In connection with the Master Memorandum of Understanding 
with the National Park Service, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-101) , Trustee 
Troy stated that this document merely indicates an interest in a 
cooperative arrangement between UM/ Amherst and the Park Service in 
which resources would be shared . Treasurer Johnson and University 
Counsel Searson have reviewed the document and recommend Trustee 
approval. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer of the 
University, to enter into a Master Memorandum of 
Understanding between the University of Massachusetts/ 
Amherst and the National Park Service of the U. S. 
Department of the Interior. 

Chairman Troy also mentioned that Dean Strange had made the 
first progress report to the Committee on College III (College of 
Public and Community Service) at UM/Boston (DOC. T73-102). The Dean 
had outlined objectives in the areas of curriculum, certificates of 
credit, staffing, and other needs. Mr. Troy reviewed these for the 
Board, noting that much of the planning at College III is nontradi- 
tional and subject to a "certain amount of trial and error" requiring

continuous evaluation. He added that the Committee was very favor- 
ably impressed with Dean Strange and his staff and expects to hear 
from them again in early spring, at which time initial plans for 
College IV will be presented as well. 

Reporting for the Finance Committee, Chairman Pumphret recom- 
mended the approval of the Guidelines for Investment of Endowment 
Funds (DOC. T7 3-093) which had been developed primarily through the 
joint efforts of Treasurer Johnson and Ed Voci, a student at UM/ 
Amherst. Most major universities and many foundations are adopting 
similar guidelines. In maintaining its socially responsive invest- 
ment posture, the University will receive the reports of the Investor 
Responsibility Research Center, Inc. The Finance Committee will, 
of course, continue to make final decisions on all investments. 
President Wood commended Messrs. Johnson and Voci and others who had 
contributed to developing the guidelines. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the following guidelines for the invest- 
ment of the endowment fund: 

1. The principal criterion for the selection or 
retention of portfolio securities should be 
that of maximum economic return within the 
context of a prudent but flexible investment 
policy that maintains a reasonable balance 
between the income, growth and security of 
the fund. 

2. The University will seek to invest in corpor- 
ations that have a responsible posture in 
matters relating to (1) the protection of the 
environment, (2) public health, (3) consumer 
protection, (4) equal employment opportunities, 
and (5) compliance with national and inter- 
national law. 

3 . The University will endeavor to take informed 
and ethical positions whenever it exercises 
its voting rights as a stockholder and may com- 
municate directly with management when there 
is evidence that the corporation is not acting 
responsibly in the public interest. 

4. When there is evidence that a corporation in 
which the University owns stock is persistently 
engaging in activities that are grossly con- 
trary to these guidelines, the Treasurer, after 
consultation with investment counsel, will 
recommend the sale of that stock. 

5. In all cases, the Trustees of the University 
acting in accordance with its Bylaws through its 
Finance Committee shall make the final decision 
on all investments.

male student in good standing in the University who 
is participating in the wrestling program at the 
Amherst campus. Said recipient is to be selected 
by the campus Committee on Scholarships and Fin- 
ancial Aid on recommendation of the Athletic Department. 

Trustee Pumphret then turned to the Rate Changes in the

Chairman Pumphret then requested approval of a Fund Trans- 
fer, UM/Worcester (DOC. T73-091) in line with the State Budget

It was further 

VOTED : That every personnel action shall be subject 
to the policies and procedures now in effect 
as subsequently amended, revised, added to, or

study as well as a master plan; also, that there was a sense of 
unanimity among the members regarding Secretary Cronin's proposed 
Reorganization Plan similar to that expressed by the University's 
Board of Trustees today. One of the major points raised by the BHE 
was that the impact of vital and important knowledge and scrutiny 
provided by the present governing boards would be lost under the 
reorganization proposal. 

Mr. Gordon announced that a meeting of the Committee on 
Government and University Relations will be held on March 6. 

Chairman Healey appointed the following nominating committeje

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The minutes of the previous meeting were then presented for 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To approve the minutes of the meeting of January 31, 1973J. 

President Wood informed the Board that he has been review- 
ing the impact of the federal budget cuts on the fiscal situation of 
the University and has prepared the following statement: 

After careful study, we conclude that the proposed federal 
:uts for 1973-74 would seriously restrict educational opportunities 
Eor colleges and university students, public and private, in Massa- 
chusetts, as elsewhere. Students at the University alone stand to 
Lose as much as $3 million in federal scholarship loan and work study 
lid, including training grants in areas such as nursing, clinical 
psychology, and education. College and university students through- 
3ut the Commonwealth may lose as much as $10 to $15 million. 

These cuts will intensify the serious deficiency in fin- 
ancial aid already faced by students in the state. The Board of 
ligher Education estimated two years ago that there was a financial 
lid gap of $50 million at then applicable tuition levels in public anc. 
private colleges and universities. 

The only change since that time is that tuition and all the 
3ther costs of attending college have risen. Even before the federal 
cuts, the University of Massachusetts had a financial aid gap of over 
$9 million. The state college system can provide aid to only a third 
of its students who need financial help, to say nothing of those who 
io not come at all because of financial barriers. 



Another way to judge the gap is to compare Massachusetts ' 
effort with that of a state with a more comprehensive scholarship 
program — for example, Pennsylvania. Adjusting for differences in 
population, Massachusetts would have to increase its effort by at 
Least $20 million to be comparable to Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania's 
program is not regarded as adequate by its own educators. 

The federal aid crisis magnifies the problem at the federal 
Level. It presents the opportunity — and even the necessity — for 
action to close the money gap that is keeping thousands of our fellow 
citizens from obtaining a college education. 

We welcome the recent call by the Board of Higher Education 
for state-supported financial aid "sufficient. . . to eliminate fin- 
ancial barriers to education generated by the total costs to students 
of attending college in both public and private institutions of 
higher education." 

We urge the Governor and the Legislature to propose and 
enact an additional statewide program of scholarships and loans of at 
least $25 million in order to offset the potential federal aid loss 
and substantially close the present aid gap. Such a program, of 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

course, should not be for the University of Massachusetts alone, but 
for students throughout the Commonwealth, in both public and private 
institutions. Student financial aid based on need is an appropriate 
way to channel state funds to private institutions, as is evidenced 
by the present $8 million program administered by the Board of Higher 
Education. Unlike the present, limited BHE program, however, this 
new effort should address the total cost of student attendance, and 
not just tuition, since many students have financial needs in excess 
of tuition. 

I regard this as an essential investment in the future of 
the Commonwealth. I hope that the Board will see fit to join me in 
urging immediate action. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To support the preceding statement by President Wood 
expressing deep concern about the financial aid gap 
throughout higher education in the Commonwealth and 
urging the Governor and the Legislature to make such 
aid available. 

Undersecretary Hardy is recorded in abstention. 



Reporting for UM/Amherst, Chancellor Bromery noted a recent 
open meeting on that campus with Lt. Gov. Dwight and Secretary of 
Educational Affairs Cronin to exchange views on the proposed Reorgani 
zation Plan. He called attention to a "first" for the University in 
the employment of Matthew Bullock, a black graduate of Dartmouth 
College, who coached winning football teams for the then Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College in 1904 and again in 1907-08. 

Acting Chancellor Hamilton, UM/Boston, stated that a recent 
review indicates that the move to Columbia Point appears to be feasi- 
ble in September, 1973; however, if by May 1 it is not considered 
possible, a decision for a January, 1974 move may be made. He added 
that there is still no progress toward starting construction of the 
interchange between the Columbia Point campus and Morrissey Boulevard 
Chairman Healey stressed that the Board has repeatedly asked the City 
of Boston to accomplish this project to handle the increased traffic 
expected with the move to Columbia Point. President Wood stated that 
Acting Chancellor Hamilton has been persistent in reiterating the 
problem to the transportation agencies and the City and that, with 
the move more imminent, there may be other ways of getting action. 

Dean Soutter, UM/Worcester, called attention to two bills 
before the Legislature, both for the appointment of a Chief Medical 
Examiner for the Commonwealth; however, one permits his placement at 
the Medical School while the other requires it. The Medical School 
prefers the former. The Dean is willing to provide space for whom- 
ever is appointed, however, and hopes that the individual would be 
willing to make some teaching time available. He also reported that,

although the $600 tuition is low compared with private medical 
schools, more than half the students admitted ask for scholarship 
aid. About 50% get it. The Medical School has tried to admit stu- 
dents who would benefit from the tuition differential, but may now 
need financial help to continue this policy as the planned increase 
to 104 students will strain the aid fund to the point of approximately 
$50,000 deficit. 

In connection with the Lease of Property , President Wood 
reviewed reports made to the Trustees over the past several months 
on litigation re payment of rents at One Washington Mall. A judgment 
is expected at any time from the Supreme Judicial Court; however, the 
landlord has expressed concern about the rent in arrears. University 
Counsel Searson suggested that the recommendation of the Executive 
Committee now be broadened to include the month of February 1973. 
Trustee Croce inquired whether the amount in question is the dif- 
ference between the present rate and that paid at the former loca- 
tion! Dr. Wood replied this would depend on the decision of the Court}. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That, in the event that the Justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court are of the opinion that the rental 
for the premises at One Washington Mall, Boston, 
Massachusetts,, occupied by the Office of the President 
cannot be paid from state appropriations, then, 
without prejudice, said rental, which is owed for 
the months of October 1972 through February 1973, 
be paid from discretionary funds of the University. 

Undersecretary Hardy is recorded in abstention. 

Reporting on the Statement on University Governance (DOC. T73 
098B), Chairman Healey stated that the Executive Committee, together 
with a number of other Trustees, had this morning again considered 
the Proposed Governance Statement. It is hoped that the final 
document will be ready for Board action in April. 

Turning to a Report on the Status of the University Medal 
for Outstanding Service , Mr. Healey proposed appointing an Ad Hoc 
Committee to plan the formal presentation of the medal. He stressed 
that it will be awarded for distinguished service to the University 
above and beyond the call of duty. He expressed gratitude to 
Trustee Rowland for its inception. Mrs. Rowland has offered her 
advice and assistance to the committee, but declines to be a member 
of it. The first presentation of the medal may occur in the fall 
of 1973. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees to appoint an Ad Hoc Committee on 
the University Medal for Outstanding Service 
to proceed with nominations and arrangements 
for its presentation.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy, Chairman of the Committee on Faculty and 
Educational Policy, reported on the Status and Review of Graduate 
Programs by that Committee. At UM/ Amherst, Dean Appley has been 
reviewing the graduate program to determine which areas can be phased 
down, eliminated, merged, or accelerated. Criteria for the recom- 
mendations include the demand for highly trained people in specific 
areas and the internal resources for allocating the graduate program 
in relation to Amherst, Boston, and Worcester. It is expected that 
Amherst will reduce its 1973-74 graduate admissions by about 200. A 
report on the study will be made to the Board soon. It appears that 
the complexities of UM/Boston's move to Columbia Point will delay 
consideration of a graduate program there; however, development is 
foreseen in the future. Chairman Troy stated that President Wood has 
been trying to bring the overall graduate program into perspective 
despite the dilemma of limited means and students' unlimited demands. 

The President noted that Vice President Edelman, Vice Chan- 
cellor Gluckstern (UM/ Amherst) , Acting Vice Chancellor Marshall (UM/ 
Boston), the Chancellors, and Dean Appley have all been appraising 
the graduate programs with a qualitative rather than a quantitative 
goal. He continued that, with total enrollment by 1980 now adjusted 
downward to 43,000, corresponding adjustments will be made at the 
graduate level, particularly for UM/Boston and UM/Worcester (outside 
the Medical School). However, graduate education has an important 
function in maintaining the quality of undergraduate study as well as 
in providing service to the Commonwealth. With current rapid changes 
in fields and subfields of study, it is expected that four or five 
visiting committees will be invited to consider special problems. 
The Graduate Council, UM/Boston, will be encouraged to continue in itjs 
effort to develop criteria for structuring a graduate program at a 
later date. President Wood expects to have a report for the Board, 
the Legislature, and the public in the near future. 

Chairman Troy then turned to the Proposal for a Graduate 
Program in Mathematics, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-117). Although already 
one of the Master's offerings, this degree has been awarded hereto- 
fore through UM/ Amherst. On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the Graduate Program in Mathematics t iat 
UM/Boston as outlined in DOC. T73-117 as a degree 
program from that campus rather than from UM/ Amherst. 



Trustee Troy then reported on the Progress of the Premedicall UM/ Amherst— 



Program for Minority and Disadvantaged Students, UM/Amherst (DOC. 
121). 



T72 



In response to an inquiry from Trustee Abrams, a committee 
chaired by Dr. Darity, Head of the Department of Public Health, has 
been exploring present and future plans in the Commonwealth as well 
as in other states for meeting the need for more minority physicians. 
Dean Edds, a member of the committee, reported special concentration 
on three problems: (1) development of an appropriate academic pro- 
gram, including advising, counseling, and financial aid; (2) develop- 
ment of an admissions and early-identification program; and (3) devel

opment of a continuing assessment of the program at UM/Worcester . 
The committee hopes to improve the University's interface with the 
secondary schools, especially to inform minority students of the 
careers possible to them and the assistance available. Dr. Edds 
expects to submit a preliminary report by the end of the spring 
semester . 

The final item considered by the Committee was the Report 
of the School of Education, UM/ Amherst (DOC. T73-119) as presented b} 
Dean Dwight Allen and Associate Deans Gentry and Seidman. Chairman 
Troy stressed two broad areas; the philosophy of the School and some 
of the specific impending decisions. He termed the School "lively in 
spirit" and stated that its programs have created genuine interest 
across the nation. Grading is entirely pass-fail. The students are 
encouraged to pursue their own motivations and develop their own 
strengths and interests independently. The faculty places the 
acquisition of learning far below the development of critical-thinkiijg 
processes, self -motivation and self-fulf illment. At the graduate 
level there is an especially outstanding faculty which has attracted 
many more applicants than can be admitted. The placement of graduate 
students is practically guaranteed, while the record for four-year 
students is exceptionally good. Dean Allen was optimistic about the 
continuing availability of nonstate money, which now makes up about 
60 percent of the budget for the School. 

Trustee Crowley, Chairman pro tem of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds , requested Dean Strange to report on the Pre- 
liminary Drawings, Building, 030, UM/Boston . Dr. Strange acknowl- 



I 



edged the fine cooperation received from Messrs. Roth (architectural 
consultant), Prince (Planning Officer, UM/Boston), Coletti (architect]), 
and Hogarty, who has done most of the staff work. He itemized five 
reasons for his enthusiasm about Building 030: (1) the conference 
center on the first level which will probably be the busiest and most 
attractive part of the building, and where his faculty are already 
requesting space, (2) the three decentralized dining facilities 
located in two different areas of the building (a coffeeshop and two 
cafeterias, each adjacent to seminar rooms), (3) the central corridor 
with emphasis on the street at all three levels, (4) a mix of teach- 
ing and office space in a split-level arrangement combined with a 
number of study rooms in lieu of a large library, and (5) the inter- 
esting use of landscaping. Dean Strange added that, although the 
building is designed for an innovative program, it is flexible and 
can be adapted to more traditional uses. 

At this point, Mr. Barry Coletti of Coletti Brothers, 
Architects, explained that Building 030 will be located on the northern 
side of the plaza, along with the library and the physical education 
building. He then gave a detailed report on the drawings for Build- 
ing 030, using projected diagrams showing floor plans. In addition 
to the unique features mentioned by Dean Strange, Mr. Coletti pointec 
out that the building provides for two stories of parking for approx- 
imately 540 cars and three lecture halls (one for 250 students and 
two for 100 students). It is planned around an indoor-outdoor 
relationship with the street.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Continuing, Mr. Ben Gary of Moriece & Gary, Land Consul- 
tants, explained the rationale and use of the outdoor areas, noting 
:hat an effort had been made to maximize the use of roof areas for 
:he educational and social activities of the college. Using projectec 
slides, he explained in detail the circulation, traffic, and various 
uses of the levels and terraces involved in the design. The plans 
Include an underground irrigation system, hardy plantings and gate 
acilities. 

Mr. Coletti mentioned that the lecture hall center provides 
for year-round, 16-hour-a-day use, with the rest of the building 
losed, thus providing a conf erence-with- luncheon area. 

Mr. Roth, architectural consultant for the University, com- 
nented that he has been working closely with the architects and land- 
capers and commends their work. Additional planning time was allowec 
to permit inclusion of innovations in Dean Strange 's academic program 
for. Roth stated that Building 030 will be "a superb addition to the 
olumbia Point campus." 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the preliminary drawings of Building 030, 
UM/Boston, at Columbia Point, as submitted by Coletti 
Brothers, Architects. 

Regarding the Columbia Point campus, Trustee Crowley said 
that the Committee also considered a Report of the Ad Hoc Committee 
on Building 080/2, UM/Boston (DOC. T73-114) , concerning necessary 
changes to adapt the building to fine arts as well as to science. He 
referred the Trustees to the Committee minutes of February 28, 1973, 
for the complete discussion. 

The Committee then recommended approval in principle of the 
transfer to the Town of Amherst of the Land Reserved for a Fire 
Station Site (DOC. T73-120) (by vote of the Board on June 29, 1970), 



an expression of interest having previously been voted on August 12, 
1968. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery, UM/Amherst, 
to notify the Town of Amherst Selectmen that a site con- 
sisting of approximately 3.8 acres on the northeasterly 
side of the intersection of East Pleasant Street and 
Tillson Farm Road, as detailed on sketches presented by 
Planning Officer Littlefield, UM/Amherst, has been 
reviewed by the Trustees who support in principle its 
transfer to the Town of Amherst for the purpose of 
erecting a fire station, subject to final determination 
of the appropriate metes and bounds and subject to final 
Trustee action at a future meeting.

The Committee is also recommending cooperation with the 
Town of Amherst to Share Cost of Fire Apparatus (DOC. T73-120) , this 
precedent having been set by a vote on February 12, 1953, to share 
the cost of an aerial ladder truck. 

On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery, UM/ 
Amherst, to notify the Town of Amherst Selectmen 
that the Trustees support in principle the concept 
of the University sharing on a 50/50 basis the 
cost of two new fire trucks, a 1,000-gallon pumping 
engine, and a new elevating-platform-type fire 
truck, subject to the availability of state funds 
amounting to $67,500 for this purpose. 

Trustee Crowley then proposed the Temporary Transfer of 
Land to the DPW for Construction of the North Pleasant Street Bypass , 
UM/Amherst (DOC. T73-120). 



Emergency 
Capital Outlay 
Request, FY 1972 
(DOC. T73-116) 



On motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize and support the administration of 
UM/Amherst in working with the Department of 
Public Works, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in 
determining the appropriate metes and bounds of 
parcels of land totaling approximately 48 acres 
to be taken temporarily by DPW for the purpose of 
constructing the North Pleasant Street Bypass 
Road, the title to approximately seven acres of 
said land to be retained by DPW for the Route 116 
interchange; the title to approximately 41 acres 
to be returned to the University at a later date, 
so that said title to 41 acres may be transferred 
by future vote of the Trustees to the Town of 
Amherst in exchange for the title to the portion of 
North Pleasant Street bisecting the University 
campus which will then be closed off. 

Before presenting the Capital Outlay Requests, Trustee 
Crowley reviewed the reassessment of the capital outlay needs of the 
University since 1970 under President Wood, in view of UM/Amherst 
topping off at 25,000 and UM/Boston's projected enrollment reduced 
from 15,000 to 12,500. In consequence, the building program at 
Columbia Point has been adjusted to accommodate that number of stu- 
dents, with Building 080/2 plans revised to house both science and 
fine arts. 

The Committee is recommending endorsement of the Emergency 
Capital Outlay Request, FY 1973 (DOC. T73-116). 



President Wood noted that the request is in Undersecretary 
Hardy's office at this time.

VOTED ; To approve the addition of Trustees Edmund J. Croce 

and Dennis M. Crowley to the Executive Committee with 
full voting power by invitation of the Chairman until 
such time as the Bylaws are amended or revised to 
provide for members-at-large, at which time they shall 
be so designated. 

Trustee Troy called attention to the Ad Hoc membership on 
the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy and the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds, noting that Trustees in the Ad Hoc category 
should be notified when matters relating to their concerns are to be 
considered. Chairman Healey added that the revised Bylaws will pro- 
pose two additional Committees, Long-range Planning and Budget, 
thereby possibly requiring some restructuring of the present Trustee 
assignments.

a Board meeting for the first time; Michael P. Sullivan, Jr., who 
has recently succeeded Merle L. Howes as Chairman of the Board of 
Selectmen in the Town of Amherst; also, Gavin. D. Robertson who has
